Tsunami in the Sky by FramedByNature Tsunami in the Sky by FramedByNature
June 19th, 2011

An other-worldly supercell roams across the plains of Nebraska at night, illuminated by lightning. Chased this storm literally from when it was a tiny cumulus. Then started producing little hail. Then a tornado. Eventually, it morphed together with another storm. You'd think that would have killed them both, but they somehow merged into this freakish tsunami wave-like structure.
Wasn't sure what category to put this in... feel like there needs to be a whole new category for photographic animations lol. "Living pictures" or something like that.

Freaking inspiring! So amazing! And I agree, there should be a category for this - you should look into getting all the photographers who make GIF's like this and try and get dA to make a new catergory. I think "Living Pictures" is a good title :D

It's a very nice display of nature's work.

Though I think the animation would be smoother if you did it in flash, rather than just a GIF. Also, if you had tried to remove the unsightly power-lines, and the man-made lights from the tower in the background from the picture. I think that takes away from the storm itself because the lighting flashes and the power-lines, and other man-made structures that shake back and forth kinda ruin it for me.

They do have a category for this; Photography> Animals, Plants & Nature> Weatherscapes. Your comment about 'living pictures....' It's a GIF image. There's people who have been doing this sort of thing for years. Saying something like that seems like it came out of the 1800s, and I dare to say that any filmographer who would read that should cringe a bit.

I've been reading some of the other comments, and to be honest; I don't think it should matter what version of Photoshop you paid for to do this. It could have been made in a free program like GIMP just as easily.

And if you really don't think the camera matters, I invite you to take the same quality image with a cell phone.

I can see how you had trouble knowing what category to put this in. I admire you very much for 'storm-chasing' and catching this incredible photo to work with, then animate. 'High times in Nebraska', eh? Storms are incredibly unpredictable. This is truly worthy of the DD you received. Congratulations and thank you.

No, this one got WAY out of control. Basically what happened was that a tornado got morphed into this beast by colliding with another storm, usually they would cancel each other out but that is not what happened here, as you can see.

This is so wonderful to watch. And to know that you caught this while storm-chasing makes it that much more amazing. I bet that was one hell of a storm.

It had one crazy life, from producing tornadoes to morphing into this. And we were on it when it was just a tiny little cumulus =D
