Photos from a real-life storm chaser:
TED Fellow Camille Seaman captures the spectacular and ominous beauty of storm clouds. Supercell clouds, like the ones above, can grow up to 50 miles wide and reach up to 65 thousand feet into the atmosphere. In her TEDTalk, Camille describes her experience chasing storms: “There’s a warm, moist wind blowing at your back and the smell of the earth, the wheat, the grass, the charged particles. And then there are the colors in the clouds of hail forming, the greens and the turquoise blues.”
This is me, Eliza Thornberry, part of your average family. I’ve got a dad, a mom, and a sister. There is Donnie - we found him. And Darwin, he found us. Oh yeah, about our house - it moves, because we travel all over the world. You see, my dad hosts this nature show, and my mom shoots it. Okay, so we’re not that average. And between you and me, something amazing happened… and now I can talk to animals. It’s really cool, but totally secret. And you know what? Life’s never been the same.
