I've been working on this for several months, many times getting frustrated and just shelving it for a while. I got the idea to do this after going through these images the night of this expedition, and started working on it in June. It was only possible due to the fact I used the same lens (Canon 50mm 1.8) and stayed in generally the same spot for all of the individual frames. Needless to say, some very heavy digital editing license was invoked to get this to work, IE, this definitely classifies as 'Photoshopped'. I hope that's a given, though, to anyone who sees this. That said, all of the elements of the image are real (all parts taken from the 6 individual RAW frames), the Photoshop work was simply to get all of the various parts to blend seamlessly.

The full expedition log for this day, with all of the images from this event, is here.

Nice work! I was on that storm and I think you captured the evolution very well. I can only imagine how many hours in photoshop that took! John
