It is almost like these trees have a front row seat watching this storm as lightning strikes and dances in front of them during this beautiful Colorado thunderstorm on the country plains. A very active night that got me out of bed and out the door to this location. It is so nice when a plan comes together, as from my bedroom window I could see it hitting up in this area.
So off I went and when I got here, the set up was two cameras, one shooting in this direction Northeast and the other 100 feet apart shooting Southwest towards a barn and silo. Really got my exercise on this as I would have to run back and forth between the two cameras hitting the shutters. When one was done the other would go. Had 30 seconds exposures to do this. Finally the lightning in the Northeast stopped and I got both cameras together to the barn, one shooting wide angle and the other closer in. This is in Southwest Weld County, Colorado.
