Vorticity: A Tornado Time-lapse

There are people in this world who come up with an idea and get told that they are, quite likely, a little bonkers: that would just be the reaction of friends and family.  The rest of the world would likely consider them stark-staring mad.  Perhaps it was like that when Mike Oblinski came up with the idea of making a time-lapse of a tornado.  I can just imagine the eyes rolling and the heads shaking. However, it didn’t stop him and this spell-binding footage was caught in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma.  I guarantee that once you start watching this you continue to the end. So, Oblinski might still be considered crazy but after this, possibly on the genius side of the tracks – always the right side to be on. Plus he didn’t only get one tornado – he got six.
