A 2.5-Minute Lightning Show Synced to Music

Photographer Ron Risman has created a video that he calls “The Most Spectacular 2.5 Minutes of Lightning.” It shows a powerful lightning storm in Kansas synchronized with music.

The footage was captured in 4K resolution in the plains just west of Hoxie, Kansas. Risman was part of a stormchasing crew with Tempest Tours in early July 2016.

“We drove about 8 hours to get to this storm in time for sunset and it didn’t let us down,” Risman tells PetaPixel. “This was filmed in 4k and is not a timelapse. I captured a little over 6 minutes of the storm and then edited it down to the best 2.5 minutes.”
