If you enjoyed the stunning images we shared last week of a lightning storm from 37,000 in the air, then you're going to love this.

There is a new short film taking the world by storm, and for good reason. It is absolutely breathtaking and it's a mesmerizing take on something that can be seen right in your own backyard.

Phoenix-based Mike Olbinski is at it again. The wedding photographer turned storm chaser has produced, “Vorticity.” It is a six-minute, 22-second time-lapse exhibition of some of the most fascinating weather phenomena, including massive cumulonimbus cloud formations, microbursts, dust storms, lightning and tornadoes.

Olbinski captured the footage during an 18-day period where he drove 20,000 miles across nine states and shot 60,000 frames. The filming took place between April 15 and June 15.

For those who are interested in the type of equipment that Olbinski used to film these flawless scenes, he had several different cameras on hand, including a Canon 5DS R, a Canon 5D III, Canon 11-24mm f/4, 16-35mm, 35mm, 50mm and 135mm.

Storm chasing is Olbinski's passion and his enthusiasm, and appreciation for what nature can do is definitely highlighted in this incredible film you'll want to watch over and over. Click on the video below to watch his latest masterpiece and share it with everyone you know.

Olbinski also captured some epic footage of monsoons over Arizona last year and created an amazing time-lapse film of that as well. Click here to check it out.
