Golden Ponds Scenic Sunset Reflections 3

Golden Ponds Scenic Sunset Reflections 3

 

A beautiful spring night after a great two day rain, golden ponds sunset reflections.  Longmont Colorado, Boulder County.  Number 3 in this series.   The Golden Ponds land was donated to the City of Longmont by the V.V. Golden Foundation. Vernon Golden, who had mined gravel on this site, donated the land to Longmont citizens as a place to fish, walk and enjoy nature. A bronze sculpture of ‘Vern’ helping a small boy fish was donated by the family and is located along the path just West of the parking lot. With a magnificent view of Longs Peak and the Front Range, this park features 94 acres with 56 acres of water surface in four ponds.

Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills BW

Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills BW

 

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

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 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.    Here are my settings for this Lightning session. ISO 100 – 20sec – f5.6 – 28mm.  Hope you enjoy.
