Longs Peak Lightning ThunderStorm 4
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. 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 and do not last long. For me as soon as I saw some flashed in the sky, out the door and landed where I could to get a composition view of Longs Peak. A shot I have been working on for five years. There are 8 Lightning images in the series. This is number four color. Here are my settings for this Lightning session. ISO 100 – 20sec – f5.6 – 28mm. This is a layered of 4 images equal to an 80 sec exposure. Hope you enjoy them.
