Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills 8BW
Lightning bolts, cloud to ground striking the front range foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Boulder County. A view of the Twin Peaks, Mount Meeker 13,911' and Longs Peak 14,256' in the distance. A very rare sight to see because with most storms the cloud cover is low and you can not see the Peaks or Continental Divide. This storm came in fast about 8:30 pm, one thing I have learned about Colorado Lightning storms in the springtime... they come in fast... move fast... and do not last long. For me as soon as I saw some flashes in the sky, out the door and landed where I could to get a composition view of Longs Peak for some dream shots. Funny as I was setting up shooting a farmer showed up to deliver 8 boxes of live bees to set down about 20 feet from me, he told me hopefully it will all go well. Lucky for me it did. The Lightning was all over in less than twenty minutes. It moved north but died out. Looking forward to the warmer weather when the lightning in the storm last a little longer. There are 8 Lightning images in this series. Here are my settings for this Lightning session. ISO 100 - 20sec - f5.6 - 28mm. Hope you enjoy them.
