Produced by Randy Halverson and shot in central South Dakota, this is a stunning example of time lapsed photography of our Milky Way galaxy with a backdrop of electrical storms in the background.

One of the challenges in making this video, was trying to get good storm with stars shots. The opportunity doesn’t come along very often, the storm has to be moving the right speed and the lightning can overexpose the long exposures. I had several opportunities this summer to get storm and star shots. In one instance, within a minute of picking up the camera and dolly, 70mph winds hit. One storm was perfect, it came straight towards the setup, then died right before it reached it.
