Stunning supercells and terrifying tornadoes - storm chaser Mike Oblinski chases some of the most extreme weather in the world. Mike spends almost all his free-time photographing extreme weather formations such as vast super cell thunderstorms and lightning strikes - often travelling hundreds of miles in a single day. The 40-year-old has been fascinated by storms since he was a child and has progressed from photographing lightning in his back garden to become a professional storm photographer. This year, the father-of-three, from Phoenix, Arizona, USA, spent two weeks on the plains of Arizona, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas and California - capturing incredible time-lapse footage of Mother Nature in action. Dodging dangers such as tennis ball sized hailstones and treacherously strong winds, he succeeded in revealing the beauty behind the potentially life-threatening weather patterns.
