Mike Olbinski has been creating incredible storm centered photo and video content for years. We have shown you the dangerous power of a tornado through his eyes and his award winning once-in-a-lifetime lightning capture.
But the Arizona based photographer is probably best known for his film series ‘Monsoon’, which brings viewers inside the heart-pounding storms that descend on the southwestern desert every spring and summer.
With today’s release of ‘Monsoon IV’, Olbinski once again delivers a tour de force of powerful storm time-lapse clips coupled with music that was seemingly composed just for this very film. And indeed it was, perfectly.
The film is made from 110,000 photos taken over 13,000 miles of storm chasing from Desert Center, CA to Wilna, NM to the northern and southern borders of his homestate of Arizona. It seems like a monumental project that Olbinksi undertakes every year. But luckily for us, four years in and he doesn’t seem to be growing tired of the hard work. And the southwestern desert doesn’t seem to be tired of producing incredible storms for him to capture.
