Watch This Beautiful Video Of A Storm Brewing Above Kansas

The American Great Plains are known as much for their outsized spring weather as anything else. Often, extreme events like tornadoes (or supercell thunderstorms, the relatively rare meteorological phenomena we're talking about here) can be violent, dangerous, and downright destructive. But not every storm is devastating. And in fact, when viewed from afar — and through the skilled lens of a photographer — extreme storms can be incredibly beautiful. Case in point: this timelapse video of a supercell storm forming near Climax, Kansas, which was captured by the photographer Stephen Locke. It's a mesmerizing (and a little bit terrifying — though no one was injured or killed in this storm) mix of clouds, rain, lightning, sunset and that flat prairie landscape. It's better in the showing than the telling, so take a look in the video above.
