Watching clouds in real time can be fascinating however it is when they are sped up via time lapse that we can oftentimes truly see the subtle motions that we otherwise miss. A time lapse video released by some local storm chasers provide a stunning visual of wave clouds near Boulder.

Posted to YouTube today by Basehunters Chasing, the video showcases scenes captured over a couple of days along the Front Range.

Rolling mountain wave clouds serve as a backdrop to cows in a field.  Watching closely, snow can be seen falling on the highest mountain peaks.  Zoomed in views of a wave cloud follow showing the amazing motion.

Lastly a sunset is seen with the clouds starting pastel orange, then turning brilliant bright orange before fading away.

The video is set to a very soothing flute-type instrumental.  Check it out below.
