Lightning and Sepia Rain Over Rocky Mountain FoothillsSepia version

Lightning with rain coming down over the front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountain foothills, this is a view from McIntosh Lake in Longmont,  looking center right at the hidden Twin Peaks, Mt Meeker and Longs Peak covered in clouds.  I Started watching the storm as it was hitting behind the foothills in the high country early in the evening.  Also started with a great view with horses but the lightning strikes were behind the hills so that shot did not pan out.  Next was hoping to get this storm in Boulder, and thought of a view from Old Stage Rd. So down 36 I went headed to north Boulder and gassed up.  It has been a while since I have been on that road so I went up Lee Hill Rd made a wrong turn and ended up in Left Hand Canyon.

I25 Intra-Cloud Lightning Strikes

Intra-Cloud Lightning lighting up the night sky. This storm got me out the door and on to this chase waiting for it to bust out of the clouds but that never happened. So in looking for something interesting to photograph with this storm I landed at out side of Mead Colorado with a view of I-25 with golden light from the city lights and purple lit up intra-lightning clouds – Intra-cloud lightning is by far the most common type and my least favorite to photograph.
