While on the road in Missouri, we encountered a severe thunderstorm. I shot hundreds of photos through the windshield as we sped down the freeway (I as a passenger, not driver.)

When I uploaded these shots to my computer, I was struck with the time-lines in the metadata. I found that I had taken up to seven shots per minute! So, working with blending software, I was able to compress and construct each one-minute into a final representation of the reality I encountered.

Each piece is titled with its time and date. Click the image at left to see more of these compressions
