Winter Season view of St Malo’s Chapel on the Rock, Built atop a massive granite rock, it’s in every way a part of the valley landscape. Saint Catherine’s Stone Chapel on the Rock sits in the shadow of Mount Meeker, the 13,916-foot peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Chapel on the Rock (officially, Saint Catherine of Siena Chapel) is a popular tourist landmark in Allenspark, Colorado, visited by thousands every year. The chapel is located on the grounds of the Saint Malo Retreat Center, the retreat center for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver, near Mount Meeker. In 1999, Boulder County designated the chapel as a historic site. Pope John Paul II prayed at the chapel during his visit to Denver for World Youth Day in 1993.
In honor of Easter, a monsoon lightning thunderstorm with bolts of lightning striking behind a religious Christian cross in front of a church. Some of my lightning images I compose a head of time in my mind and some have taken up to three years to get. This image took 20 minutes. It was my shot for the summer. The church was very close to my house. The storm came in with a bang and the rest is history. Some things are meant to be. This is a black and white sepia version with a layer of texture and hand blended and toned. Inspired Easter 2013.

Happy Easter! This shot was taken in the high elevation near Vail, Colorado. It was a stormy night, and at the blink of an eye, Lightning bolts strike what looks like opening the gates to heaven… and then seconds later… it’s gone. This was one 30 second exposure image and one lightning strike forming the gates, four cloud to ground and one cloud to cloud. The rest is my Lightning fantasy composite, black and white selective color on this version. Panorama fine art lightning fantasy composite photography photograph print, maybe a little over the top but fun to do. Hope you like.
