Farmer, photographer, and amateur astronomer Randy Halverson spent the summer filming these stunning timelapse images of the night sky and storm formations on his property in South Dakota.
How did he do it? Halverson writes:
One of the challenges in making this video, was trying to get good storm and star shots. The opportunity doesn’t come along very often, the storm has to be moving the right speed and the lightning can overexpose the long exposures. I had several opportunities this summer to get storm and star shots. In one instance, within a minute of picking up the camera and dolly, 70mph winds hit. One storm was perfect, it came straight towards the setup, then died right before it reached it.
