Lovely Sky Monsters

|

Award-winning photographer Camille Seaman, best known for her earlier work depicting massive polar icebergs, recently turned her lens on another incredible natural phenomenon - storm clouds above the American Midwest. She partnered with experienced storm chasers and began to stalk a particular type of storm cloud - the supercell. On June 22, 2012, in western Nebraska, she encountered an enormous supercell and captured its many faces. With her permission, I've gathered here several images of that storm and a few other amazing storm shots from an earlier expedition she took in 2008. Seaman will soon be leading a photo workshop called Kazakh Migrations in far northwest China, and invites others to join her. [22 photos]
