Because storms are magnificent
I found this thanks to a Slate article by Phil Plait. He notes that much of it was shot near Limon, Colorado, about 90 miles southeast of where he lives, which by my reckoning puts him in the Denver metro. That’s two more reasons for me to love this video — not that I needed them.
If you’re in the mood, watch all three videos in full screen mode with the volume at an appropriate level (I found the music a bit harsh on the second one). All are wonderful, but the last is definitely the best. I still have goosebumps.
Note: I was slow to leverage the technology at my disposal. This video is also posted on YouTube, which means I was able to use my Xbox to play it on the TV. Big picture, big sound. Wow!
