Fracking Lightning Storm

Fracking Lightning Storm Art print

While driving around to catch this lightning thunderstorm I was looking for a good composition.  These oil and gas fracking hoods all lit up really caught my attention with lightning strikes in the distance.  This storm is heading further and further east.   Started at about 9:30 pm and went to about midnight.

Spring Lightning Thunderstorms Time Lapse Video

Colorado thunderstorms kick up in the afternoon and as we go into the evening the lightning starts, here is a short time lapse.   One of the things I love about Colorado is the weather.  Of course it depends on where you live.  We live just a few miles from the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and the weather is much different  just 30 minutes up the Canyons.  Most of the time we are in sunshine while  it is snowing up in the mountains.   Of course people hear snow in Colorado and really don’t realize it is always snowing up in the high country.  Not that we don’t get our share… but the best part… it is gone quickly.

Summers are the best here.  A typical summer day starts with clear blue skies in the morning and by 1:00 pm in the afternoon the storms start to roll in.   Then we get some afternoon showers that cool things down just in time for a beautiful sunset.   The further east you go from the foothills the storms get a little more active and the lightning strikes start.  But as they always say…” if you don’t like the weather here… just wait ten minutes”.

Hope you enjoy this time lapse.  This is my 28th year catching lightning.  It really starts to take over my life in the spring and summer.  I was starting to get a little crazy cause this is the first real lightning storm I have caught this year,  So the fun begins….

Rainbow Down

Rainbow Down Art Print

Here is another view and close-up of a rainbow raining down on beautiful Arches National Park in Utah.   There were a lot of photogs out on this Sunday. One guy had a huge L lens shooting all over the place… I had to yell at him to turn around to get this before it was gone.  He did not even see it.   We laughed and he thanked me.   It was fun chasing this rainbow around the park to get diffient views of something incredible happening on the landscape.  Put this place on your bucket list, well worth the fun and journey.

Humans have occupied the region since the last ice age 10,000 years ago. Fremont people and Ancient Pueblo People lived in the area up until about 700 years ago. Spanish missionaries encountered Ute and Paiute tribes in the area when they first came through in 1775, but the first European-Americans to attempt settlement in the area were the Mormon Elk Mountain Mission in 1855, who soon abandoned the area. Ranchers, farmers, and prospectors later settled Moab in the neighboring Riverine Valley in the 1880s. Word of the beauty of the surrounding rock formations spread beyond the settlement as a possible tourist destination.

The Arches area was first brought to the attention of the National Park Service by Frank A. Wadleigh, passenger traffic manager of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Wadleigh, accompanied by railroad photographer George L. Beam, visited the area in September 1923 at the invitation of Alexander Ringhoffer, a Hungarian-born prospector living in Salt Valley. Ringhoffer had written to the railroad in an effort to interest them in the tourist potential of a scenic area he had discovered the previous year with his two sons and a son-in-law, which he called the “Devil’s Garden” (known today as the “Klondike Bluffs”). Wadleigh was impressed by what Ringhoffer showed him, and suggested to Park Service director Stephen T. Mather that the area be made a national monument.
