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.

Lightning Thunderstorm On The Colorado Plains

Lightning Thunderstorm On The Colorado Plains Art Print

I love it when these springtime lightning storms kick up on the Colorado farming plains. This is one of my favorite Boulder County views. Lightning strikes from this storm cell cloud with blue skies and stars above. What a beautiful sight it was. This is a four image stack. Panorama landscape view.

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.

Pinnacle Peak Surrounded in Black and White Art Print

 

Pinnacle Peak, Arizona, surrounded by lightning bolts. Lightning striking on both sides and above during a monsoon thunderstorm.  25 sec exposure, one strike.  This was shot on film back when I used to shoot with bulb and let go after something big happened.

I have seen some of the most amazing lightning strikes up here. North Scottsdale above the valley in elevation of about 2,000 ft.  Back in the day this was not even North Scottsdale it just way out in the desert… the boonies.
