It might look like a dramatic scene in a movie, created entirely from CGI and some skilled producers — but this storm caught off the coast of Maroochydore, Queensland is 100% real. Captured with a Canon 5D Mk3 and a intervalometer (which controls the camera’s shutters at regular intervals), this imagery was first shot in digital and then edited using After Effects, creating a time lapse storm that’s so intense, you’re really not going to believe it’s the product of Mother Nature. Believe it, thought — and be glad that you weren’t standing outside in Queensland when it went down.
