This photograph wasn't painted. It was created by stacking 436 images taken sequentially over a 30 minute period, while the camera was moving slowly on a motorized dolly. The resulting image shows the building clouds over the Tetons while the famous Moulton Barn looks painted due to each photographic layer being in a slightly different spot than the previous one due to the camera movement.
Mother Nature creates works of art that sometimes can only be seen over a period of time. This image was created by combining 332 individual photographs captured during sunset into one "time-crunched" photograph.
This time-crunched photograph combines 291 images captured sequentially during the winding down of a severe thunderstorm. The green skies happen when late day sun shines through the hail core of the storm.
As a storm chasing there's very little that compares to getting to capture a slow moving lightning storm. This storm lasted for almost an hour, allowing me to create this breathtaking photograph by combining 143 images from a timeapse into a single photograph.
As this thunderstorm was trying to develop the tops were getting sheared by wind, creating an opening that let light through. The light came through as a greenish / blue color while the edge of the clouds were sun kissed with red and orange. This photograph was created by combining 66 images captured sequentially as this storm started to move toward us.
Combining hundreds of images that were taken from late day into starry nights created this single "time-crunched" photograph.
This amazing photograph illustrates the breathtaking skies often associated with severe storms. This photograph was created by stacking and combining 63 images that were captured in sequence with about 2 seconds between pictures. This technique creates an almost painterly feel to the photograph since it includes movement of the landscape over time - within the one frame.
As thunderstorms start to break apart, afternoon light is usually there to help create beautiful light. This piece of art was created by stacking and combining 390 separate images to help show the movement in time in a single photograph.
To date, this is my largest time-crunched photograph, combining 1045 photographs together to create this breathtaking Milky Way and Star Trail photograph. The light in the foreground actually came from a setting moon, and not the late day sun. The reflection on the lake and the contrast between landscape and sky really make this a spectacular photograph.
Until this day I have never seen Cumulus clouds grow outward as if it exploded from within. I captured these clouds in a timelapse sequence of 311 images, then combined the images into a single photograph creating a beautiful work of art caused by mother nature.
Feeling as if you just might be in Kansas, this storm cloud and sunlight to its west, makes you grateful that you're there to witness it, while at the same time, a bit nervous as to what might happen next.
When shooting under the incredibly dark skies of Lake Powell, the foreground often goes dark. I decided to capture a timelapse starting in late afternoon and ending well after midnight. This allowed me to take the 408 images that I captured and combine them to create star trails over a golden lit red-rock foreground.
The Wild Tetons combines 642 photographs that were captured starting before sunset and ending just after sunset illustrates how the high elevation peaks of the tetons affect cloud movement and development.
This fast moving storm started to develop and head E/SE as I was capturing a time lapse sequence. I combined the 435 images captured to create this beautiful storm photograph.
Combining 730 images that were captured sequentially from day to night created this breathtaking photograph.
Combining 156 images captured during sunset allowed the true beauty of the color in nature to shine in this reflective lake photograph.
As I started to capture this storm, winds picked up and nearly knocked over the camera and tripod. This photograph uses my timelapse sequence to show the movement of the clouds, and the white caps on the water caused by the high winds.
By combining 450 time laps frames into this single photograph I was able to create a new expressive piece of art that illustrated the ever changing beauty of our world.
This magic in this photograph comes less from the sky and more from the beauty of the late day sun reflecting off the red rock, and the matching red from car tail lights streaking across the frame, combined with the sky at dusk. In total, 515 images were combined to create this photograph.
Before getting a chance to chase storms through the plain opened my eyes to the colors and contrast of the wheat fields and corn fields against the blue skies. The color and contrast are just as beautiful with dark skies above and bright glowing fields of grains below. This lightning storm was created by combining 435 images together.
This series helps to show the beauty of mother nature and sometimes when weather is at its worst, mother nature's art is at her best. This lightning storm was captured over a brief 10 minute period while capturing 138 photographs. I then combined these images into a single time-crunched photograph.
As the sun set on the Utah Valley, the cirrus clouds that were hanging over the mountains started to light up with color as the sun started to set. This photograph was created by combining 845 images captured over a 45 minute period, showing the changing light and softening the cirrus clouds that were streaming over the peaks.
The streamer like cloud movement was captured and created by combining 896 images from an afternoon time lapse into this single photograph.
This storm developed and moved east fairly quickly. While it didn't have a lot of lightning strikes, the rotation of the cloud combined with the lone strike almost in the middle of the storm makes for a very special storm photograph. Combined 520 images to create this single photograph.
The painted sky is a term given to the skies of the American West. Native Americans coined this term due as they were one of the few with skies so vast that you could see patterns and beauty in the clouds. This photograph was created by combining 678 photographs that were taken sequentially as clouds rolled in from west to east. After combining the images I was amazed to see the incredible patterns that it created.
As a thunderstorm pulls away, the late afternoon light hits the cumulus cloud to create a magnificent orange glow against the blue skies. This image was created by combining 450 images taken sequentially during sunset.
We pulled over on this dirt road to watch this developing super cell thunderstorm. It only took a few minutes before it started to pour, but I was able to capture 148 frames of a time lapse that I then combined to create this photograph.
As the sky grew darker we hopped out of the van, grabbed our cameras, and started capturing it. This photograph was created by combining 254 frames from a time lapse.
