Real time data, weather data, it’s all interesting isn’t it? On Nullschool.net you can explore real time wind data and watch weather patterns form.  It’s pretty neat if I do say so myself.  Check it out if you can, I am. {nullschool|reddit}

HD B&W Storms

0

Black and White is an often overlooked area of photography.  Especially when time-lapse storm footage is done.  There’s something about shooting in black and white that gives everything a more mysterious, serious, yet fantasy look.  Mike Olbinski shot the entire sequence in black and white.  Yes, there is some post-processing work done, but it’s natural black … Continued

7,000 FPS Lightning

I’ll never get tired of watching storm video.  Especially storm video that’s in super slow motion of 7,000 frames per second.  The above video was captured last week during a storm in Melbourne Florida by Professor Ningyu Liu at the Florida Institute of Technology’s Geospace Physics Laboratory.  The video above is sped up to 700 frames … Continued

4k Weather

Because humans see in more then 4k.  You should watch this though, it’s 3 minutes long, and the music is pretty good and fits the mood well.  It’s making me want to travel to the midwest to set up my camera and try and record something like this myself…One day perhaps. {reddit}

This has got to be one of the more frightening things you can experience while skiing.  When you’re skiing down the mountain, you are in control.  Sure you might not think that, but you are more or less, in control of where you are headed, and how fast to go.  When you’re on the lift … Continued

Invisible Graffiti

Peregrine Church is a Seattle artist that uses a special type of spray to make temporary art installations on sidewalks.  The catch is that they are only visible after it rains.  The concept is simple, it’s basically a reverse stencil, and according to the DOT, it’s legal, so take some time and admire the sidewalks. … Continued

Yellowstone Snow

Yellowstone National Park gets alot of snow.  I know the North East is still excited about the first 50deg day in awhile and the melting of the snow, but that’s nothing compared to what goes up out west.  In the above silent video, we see workers clear off the roofs of the cabins at Lake … Continued
