One of the challenges in making this video, was trying to get good storm and star shots. The opportunity doesnt 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.
At the 1:57 mark a Whitetail buck came in to check out the setup. It was caught on 20 frames, and was there for about 10 minutes. It was only 50 yards from the camera, dolly and light.
At the 3:24 mark, a meteor reflects on the water of the small lake, see still below in Photos. There are also quite a few other meteors in the timelapse.
Canon 5D Mark II for a few shots, Canon 60D and T2i
Canon 16-35, Tokina 11-16
Exposure on most shots was 20-30 seconds, ISO 1600 or 3200 F2.8.

See the Link for the video....vert nicely done.
Love the music.
Here is another good one, although I don’t like the music so much.
I am guessing this was done from the Northern Great Plains...brings back memories...of the approaching storms.
Thanks Ernest! This is an “extra extra” ping to the APoD list.
Wow. That one took some work. Thanks for posting it.
This took me back to growing up in the Midwest and really being able to see the night sky. Thanks.
