News and Views from Dave Wilson

Congratulations to Mike!

Photo buddy Mike Olbinski found himself with a golden opportunity on Tuesday. Mike is a huge fan of weather photography (his storm photos are excellent) so when he heard that a huge duststorm was barreling towards downtown Phoenix, he grabbed his gear and headed to a location he knew would provide a good view as the storm rolled in.

A short while later, he had captured the frames needed to build a spectacular time-lapse video of the arrival and, after he posted this to his blog and Vimeo, it went viral extremely quickly!

So far, he’s been interviewed on the Today Show and the video has been shown on both NBC Nightly News and the Weather Channel. On Vimeo alone, it’s had 450,000 views and his own site was taken down by all the traffic to his blog (and is still down as I type this)!

In case you’ve been living under a rock this week, here’s the video that’s causing all the fuss. Well done, Mike – what a capture!
