Camping Under A Colorado Nighttime Milky Way Sky

Galaxy Night

Last weekend we did a little camping up in the Colorado high country of the rocky mountains where the night sky lights up with the milky way and galaxy above. There was a small pond next to us and lots of wildlife to see. Summertime at it’s best! Of course up here they say they have two seasons… winter…. and the fourth of July!

This was a fun night of shooting and creating fine art photography at one of my favorite hideaway places on the planet. All I am going to say is it is above Boulder at about 8500 feet.

The temperatures were in the high 90’s below and 85 up here. It dropped to down 49 when I was shooting these at about 3:00 am. The things we do to get the shots.

Rollinsville Colorado Lightning Thunderstorm

Rollinsville Colorado Lightning Thunderstorm

 

Fantastic afternoon thunderstorms roll in to the Colorado Rocky Mountains high country almost on a daily basis in the summer.  Lightning strikes once or twice and 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 in the day especially when it is random and does not hit more then a couple times. But it can be done, I do not use a trigger.

This storm lightning strikes were about 20 to 25 at least,  very rare to see that many and scary if you are on the mountain top  Smile .     4:00pm, June 13th, 2015.      This is a view of lightning striking over the small town of Rollinsville, Colorado, Gilpin County.  The snow covered continental divide is right under the lightning bolts covered in clouds.   This image was shot with a  Canon 7D  and is 4 image stack –  ISO 100 – I.6 sec – f22 – 33mm.

Lightning Striking Over Rollinsville Colorado

Lightning Striking Over Rollinsville Colorado Art Print

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 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,  4:00pm, June 13th, 2015.  13 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 Rollinsville Colorado, Gilpin County.  The snow covered continental divide is right below the lightning bolts hidden in the clouds.
