Beautiful video of a supercell thunderstorm

It took photographer Mike Oblinski four years of traveling to Plains States to capture this fantastic time lapse footage of a supercell thunderstorm near Booker, Texas.

Supercells are a type of thunderstorm, specifically the type that contains a rotating mass of rising air called a mesocyclone. These are the storms that form tornadoes (although Oblinski says this one did not). Watching the video, I just kept thinking about the title of that Flannery O'Connor story: Everything that rises must converge.
