Nice one, nature. Could there have been a better spot for this whirling, swirling supercell to form into a wild in-air vortex than over Climax, Kansas? Photographer Stephen Locke captured the explosive event in a timelapse that shows just how impressive the great outdoors is, in all its grand, au naturel glory.
Locke's stellar storm footage was taken on May 10; if you're into it -- and c'mon, how can you not be -- he's recorded an incredible range of similar supercells over the years. So cool.
