Colorado Anvil Lightning Crawler

Out chasing storms in northeast Colorado and saw some amazing crawlers that looked like they were coming off of a tower going up into the sky. During the dissipation of a severe thunderstorm, many discharges of lightning that never appear to make it to the ground will appear to cling to the base of a cloud. Looking up at the cloud base, an anvil crawler will look like fingers of lightning underneath the clouds.

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.
