This storm started later in the evening. Just how I like them. It was dinner time, for us we eat late, it was about 8:30. I had just got done cooking. Everypne was having something different. We were just about to sit down and it started. So as I have done many times… I looked at my wife and son and said ” I got to go” Something they are used too hearing when the first sound of thunder hits. So I went to north east Boulder County just north of Longmont to one of my favorite lakes. It was cloud to cloud lightning. Thunder heads were lighting up but the bolts would never appear. If they had… it would have been one of my best nights. It lasted for a long time. Very beautiful and hard to capture the true beauty on film.
So it’s Monday June 22nd, 9:30 at night and I am thinking there will be no storms tonight YEA, I need a break and boom another one comes in fast and furious. How many so far???
Last night was another night of chasing Lightning storms. It is crazy trying to get to a good location before the storm moves on. I have a few shots/Locations that I am working on. Hoping to pull them out before summer is over. Here is an Image from last nights storm. It was one of the first shots I took and then… did not get much after that besides soaking wet!
I did an Interview with the Daily Camera too. Look for some images in the paper. Every day I pinch myself cause I can not believe I live here. What an incredible place Boulder County is!!!

Boulder County Lightning Thunderstorm 06.05.09 The tricky part was finding a quick location. These storm coma and leave so quickly. I wanted to get a car light trail in the image, so I set up shop near Hygiene on 17th street. Here is the Image. You can see more Images in my gallery at www.TheLightningMan.com
The white and lavender Columbine, Aquilegia caerules, ( this is the Red) was adopted as the official state flower on April 4, 1899 by an act of the General Assembly. In 1925, the General Assembly made it the duty of all citizens to protect this rare species from needless destruction or waste. To further protect this fragile flower, the law prohibits digging or uprooting the flower on public lands and limits the gathering of buds, blossoms and stems to 25 in one day. It is unlawful to pick the columbine on private land without consent of the land owner. Citation: Senate Bill 261, 1899, Bill, 1925; Colorado Revised Statutes 24-80-905 through 24-80-908.
