TED Talk: Photos from a Storm Chaser

The night before my (outdoor) wedding, a storm was forming on the distant Midwestern horizon.  It had been predicted. As we drove back to the hotel from the rehearsal dinner, we watched a far off bank of gray and purple clouds form and roil with flashes of lightning.  A friend, who had never been east of the Rocky Mountains, leaned over the front seat and said in an excited whisper, “This is the most awesome thing I have ever seen.”

And it was. There is much I love about the Midwest, but mostly, I love the bigness of the sky and the storms that give texture to that large canvas. I think that is why I was so moved by this very short TED Talk by photographer and storm chaser Camille Seaman. Her beautiful photos capture the sky and its terrible magnificence.
