Jaw-Dropping Photos Tracking a Massive Storm

Most people wouldn’t dare head directly into the eye of a jaw-dropping and destructive thunderstorm known as a supercell, but photographer Camille Seaman did. The artist is known for her stunning images of the polar regions, but her latest body of work found her on the High Plains. There, guided by professional meteorologists, she chased the winding updraft and mammoth clouds of an intense supercell. The contrast between the golden fields of wheat and swirling darkness hovering over the land is breathtaking. The artist was kind enough to share her beautiful photos with us, which we’ve featured past the break. Prepare to look up.
