Huge storms are awesome, as someone recently put it in a viral video about black holes, “in the biblical sense of awesome, which means terrifying.” They’re awesome as in awe-inspiring, and a few 500px photographers spend several months per year chasing these terrifyingly awesome expressions of mother nature and coming back with some of the most incredible, eye-widening images we ever get to see.

Photographers and storm chasers like Kelly DeLay, Colt Forney, Marko Korosec, and Jon Stone (just to name a few) go out and capture what we’d hide in a cellar from, taking the risks we don’t in order to capture the photos we won’t.

So, in honor of these crazy mofos brave photographers, here are the 10 scariest supercells shared on 500px. Enjoy!
