Pinnacle Peak, Arizona, surrounded by lightning bolts. Lightning striking on both sides and above during a monsoon thunderstorm. 25 sec exposure, one strike. This was shot on film back when I used to shoot with bulb and let go after something big happened.
I have seen some of the most amazing lightning strikes up here. North Scottsdale above the valley in elevation of about 2,000 ft. Back in the day this was not even North Scottsdale it just way out in the desert… the boonies.

Lightning bolts, cloud to ground striking the front range foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Boulder County. A view of the Twin Peaks, Mount Meeker 13,911′ and Longs Peak 14,256′ in the distance. This is the black and white version.
This storm came in fast about 8:30 pm, one thing I have learned about Colorado Lightning storms in the springtime… they come in fast and do not last long. For me as soon as I saw some flashed in the sky, out the door and landed where I could to get a composition view of Longs Peak. As I was set up shooting a farmer showed up to deliver 8 boxes of live bees, he told me hopefully it will all go well. Lucky for me it did. The Lightning was all over in less than twenty minutes.
It moved north but died out. Looking forward to the warmer weather when the lightning in the storm last a little longer. Here are my settings for this Lightning session. ISO 100 – 20sec – f5.6 – 28mm. Hope you enjoy.

A favorite drive and commute. Colorado’s Boulder Creek and Canyon goes through a significant change in scenery as it moves from top to bottom toward the town of Boulder. Between Nederland’s Barker Reservoir, in the western, and the Boulder town limits in the eastern, the creek moves through Boulder Canyon.
A beautiful colorful dreamy night time scenic portrait view of the famous Chapel on The Rock with a stary sky above.
