It takes a special gift to get good pictures and/or video of a thunderstorm. My wife is a meteorologist and tries it all the time, so I know. There is a guy who has turned it literally into an art form as he converts video of Midwest storms into a true video symphony.

The man I'm talking about is Dustin Farrell. There's a reason why he has over 163, 000 followers on YouTube. You really need to see his latest work to understand just how gifted this guy is with his captures of storm development, lightning, etc.

By the way, that video was created with extra footage that ended up on the cutting room floor before. This was the original Transient video that made him famous 3 years ago.

Dustin has also done some stunning landscape videos combined with captures of the Milky Way and stars.
