Documentary footage of natural phenomena is tremendously difficult to capture in a way that retains anything like the power it has in real life.  This is incredible footage, beautiful and overwhelming.  The Atlantic has more detail about how Mike Olbinski captured this storm on video, and a nod to the importance of music in framing the perception and meaning of images, even in documentary.
