Dramatic video of storm supercell and mesocyclone: "Art of the Storm," Nicolaus Wegner

A stunning short film by Nicolaus Wegner, with music by Ryan Taubert.

"An amazing stationary supercell was produced over the Black Hills of South Dakota near Rapid City on June 1, 2015," writes Wegner. "I was fortunate enough to have the entire event unfold right in front of me over the course of several hours."

"Truly one of the most beautiful natural weather phenomenon I have ever witnessed. Time lapse, one second intervals. Canon 5dmII. Wide angle lenses."
