Rollinsville Colorado Afternoon Lightning Thunderstorm Time Lapse

 

Afternoon thunderstorms roll in to the high elevation in the Colorado Rocky Mountains almost on a daily basis in the late spring into summer. Lightning strikes once or twice and  also moves in and out pretty fast. Mostly in the early or late afternoon time of day. It is vary hard to catch a still shot without a lightning trigger.  At this time I do not use one nor have I ever used one.  This is the first image that I have caught lightning in the high elevation of the mountains. Watch the storm tracking and really though this was a good chance and it happened according to plan.  It only took me 8 years but it finally worked out.

4:00pm, June 13th, 2015.  This date and the number thirteen is a lucky number in our family because it is my sisters Kathie’s birthday. She passed away a few years ago so I can only think she had something to do with this image. Happy Birthday Kathie!

This is a view of lightning striking over the very small rustic town of Rollinsville Colorado, Gilpin County.  The snow covered continental divide is right below the lightning bolts.  The red building is the famous Stage Stop.

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve Panorama BW

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve Panorama BW

This is a very large eighteen image black and white panorama view of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. Black and white has always been my favorite so when it seems fitting, I do a color and black and white version.   This image can be printed up to seven feet long.

This is a scenic landscape view of the plains meeting the dunes and the snow covered springtime Colorado Rocky Mountains.   Park elevations range from 7,515 feet to 13,604 feet above sea level. In the summer, the sand surface can reach 150°F

Colorado Western Landscape with Red Barns

 Colorado Western Landscape Red Barns Art Print

Black and white with selective coloring Colorado western scenic landscape of a ranch in the high country of the Colorado Rocky Mountains with red barns. This was o the drive up Wolf Creek pass from Alamosa. So many cool view live traveling back in time the way the old west was then. Nice to see landscape not developed to the max.

Wolf Creek Pass, elevation. 10,857 ft. is a high mountain pass on the Continental Divide, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It is the route through which U.S. Highway 160 passes from the San Luis Valley into southwest Colorado on its way to New Mexico and Arizona through four corners. .  The pass is significantly steep on either side (6.8% maximum grade) and can be dangerous in winter.

The pass is also home to Wolf Creek ski area located on the eastern side of the Continental Divide on Highway 160. Also on the eastern side is one of the largest RV parks in the United States, located just a few miles west of South Fork, Colorado.

Wolf Creek Pass is also an attraction for tourists, as it is known for the natural beauty of the wilderness the highway passes through. Just west of the pass, about 15 miles east of Pagosa, Springs, Treasure Falls offers passers by a dramatic view of a mountain waterfall

Wolf Creek Pass was made famous in 1975 by Country music artist C. W. McCall’s humorous spoken word song of the same name, in which the pass is fondly described as “37 miles o’ hell — which is up on the Great Divide.” In the song, two truckers drive an out-of-control 1948 Peterbilt down U.S. Highway 160 to Pagosa Springs—a 5,000-foot (1,500 m) drop in elevation.

(“Wolf Creek Pass” written by Bill Fries and Chip Davis, sung by C.W. McCall)

I looked at Earl and his eyes was wide
His lip was curled, and his leg was fried.
And his hand was froze to the wheel like a tongue to a sled in the middle of a blizzard.

I says, “Earl, I’m not the type to complain
But the time has come for me to explain
That if you don’t apply some brake real soon, they’re gonna have to pick us up with a stick and a spoon…”
