Fantastic lightning show all across the eastern horizon.   This is a view from Jackson Lake in Morgan County Colorado looking East.  These thunderstorm cells  went around us giving us a great side view and show as they went out in the NE direction right past our location.  Lightning kicked up right after sunset and went on into the night.  There was a day a way full moon to the right out of frame and stars shinning bright above.  This is a stack image to get the star trails equal to almost a 3 minute exposure.

Fracking Lightning Storm

Fracking Lightning Storm Art print

While driving around to catch this lightning thunderstorm I was looking for a good composition.  These oil and gas fracking hoods all lit up really caught my attention with lightning strikes in the distance.  This storm is heading further and further east.   Started at about 9:30 pm and went to about midnight.

Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills 4C Art Print

Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills 4

 

Lightning bolts, cloud to ground striking the front range foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains in north Boulder County.  A view of the Twin Peaks, Mount Meeker 13,911 ft. and Longs Peak 14,256 ft. in the distance.

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, leave the same way 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.  There are 8 Lightning images in the series. This is number four. Here are my settings for this Lightning session. ISO 100 – 20sec – f5.6 – 28mm.
