Watching Stormy Skies From The Farm

Watching The Storm From The Farm

Photo (C) James “Bo” Insogna

There is not a better place to watch a thunderstorm with lightning striking and putting on a show then from the open space of a farm. A very active spring storm striking above this cool red barn out in the agriculture plains north east of Longmont Colorado. The colors in the clouds are from the city lights of Longmont. One of my most favorite places to watch and shoot a storm.

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.

Leading Strike

Leading Strike Lightning Art Print

This storm packed a lot of rain, so the only thing you can do in that case is find a place with a over hang, porch or park shelter.   It was tough finding something with a good composition so here we are at McIntosh lake East end view to Longs Peak in the far distance.  Longmont, Colorado, NE Boulder County.   Number one is safety the number two is protect your gear.
