Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day

 

Happy Independence Day – nature’s fire works with the red,  white and blue!

The United States is the only country with a known birthday. James G. Blaine.

So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.” Martin Luther King Jr.

“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.”  Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The winds that blow through the wide sky in these mounts, the winds that sweep from Canada to Mexico, from the Pacific to the Atlantic have always blown on free men.Franklin D. Roosevelt

Thunderstorm Tidal Wave

Thunderstorm Tidal Wave

The first stop on this storm chase as I am under a massive thunderstorm tidal wave.  The sky was lighting up pretty good with big inter-cloud burst.    This  big massive storm cloud was  moving very fast.  At this point the lightning strikes were cloud to cloud and inter- cloud.   They were starting to hit the ground further out east, the next stop on my chase.  This is in NE Boulder County, Colorado, view looking north.  The city lights of Berthoud are lightning up the right part of the clouds, making for some nice colors. Camera settings – ISO 400 – f2.8 – 11mm – 25 sec exposure.

It’s about 10:00 pm,  and I decide to take one last look outside when the sky started to light up.   The sky was lighting up pretty good with big inter-cloud burst.   This was the first stop on my storm chase.  Big massive storm clouds moving very fast.  At this point the lightning strikes were cloud to cloud and inter- cloud.  Here is a good example of the monster thunderstorm above me with the bolt just peeking out the center of the storm.

A Colorado lightning thunderstorm cell with lightning striking and mean looking clouds.  Lightning is caused by an electrical charge in the atmosphere that is unbalanced. The movement of rain and ice inside a thundercloud creates an electrical charge, with the negative charge (electrons) forming at the bottom of the cloud and the positive charge (protons) forming at the top.

Opposites attract so the negative charge at the bottom of the cloud seeks out a positive charge to connect with. Lightning can occur inside clouds, between clouds and from clouds to the ground.

A Colorado spring thunderstorm striking in the late night above a red barn on a farm and what a beautiful sight.  This is another one  my first storm chase of the 2014 season and what a great show. It was a great night of many images to be had of this beautiful thunderstorm landscape, as you can tell from recent post.

Nice to see the agriculture plains sky light up  like this.   Farming community North East of Longmont.   Custom prints available online of  Red Barn on a Farm and What a Beautiful Sight

There is not a better place to watch a thunderstorm with lightning striking and putting on a show then from the open space of a farm.  A very active spring storm striking above this cool barn out in the agriculture plains north east of Longmont Colorado.   One of my most favorite places to watch and shoot a storm.  This is a black and white with selective coloring version.  One of my favorites to do.  Hope you like.   Settings ISO 400 – f8 – 30 Sec – 28mm.  Buy custom prints online click HERE.

Front Row Seat for the Storm

 

 

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.
