Colorado Anvil Lightning Crawler

Colorado Anvil Lightning Crawler

Out chasing storms in northeast Colorado and saw some amazing crawlers that looked like they were coming off of a tower going up into the sky. During the dissipation of a severe thunderstorm, many discharges of lightning that never appear to make it to the ground will appear to cling to the base of a cloud. Looking up at the cloud base, an anvil crawler will look like fingers of lightning underneath the clouds.

Corner Of A Storm

Corner Of A Storm Art Print

While out chasing lightning storms, we get to see a lot of rainbows.  As I was shooting a rainbow view to the eastern Colorado horizon,  this was the view behind me looking west to the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

These storms come in quick over the Rocky mountains and head out east and cause all kinds of trouble.  The sun was shinning through on the top of this cloud making for a cool corner of a thunderstorm.

That Spirit In The Sky

Lightning Thunderstorm in NE Boulder County.  Looking North from Union Lake, Longmont Colorado.   Cloud-to-ground lightning bolts are a common phenomenon about 100 strike Earths surface every single second yet their power is extraordinary. Each bolt can contain up to one billion volts of electricity.  Opposites attract so the negative charge at the bottom of the cloud seeks out a positive charge to connect with. Lightning strikes usually last around 1 or 2 microseconds. This must be why it is so much fun to photograph and look at.  Lightning contains millions of volts of electricity.  This is one 10 second exposure – ISO 400 – f10 – 28mm

Abyss In the Sky

Abyss In the Sky

Abyss – An immeasurably deep chasm, depth, or void: “lost in the vast abysses of space and time” (Loren Eiseley). The primeval chaos out of which it was believed that the earth and sky were formed.
