There are two different ways to mount your acrylic print.

Option #1 (Mounting Posts) – Attach your print to your wall with four aluminum mounting posts. The cylindrical cap of each mounting post can be removed, allowing you to thread a small screw along the center axis of the of post and into the wall. When you’re finished, simply reattached each cap, and you’re done. The mounting posts act as stand-offs and keep your print separated from the wall by 1″. All of the required mounting hardware (i.e. posts, screws, and wall anchors) is included with your print. Click here for mounting details.

Option #2 (Hanging Wire) – With this option, your acrylic print is attached to a 1/4″ thick black board which has a wooden frame and hanging wire attached to the back. There are no metal mounting posts at the corners. Simply put a nail in your wall, hang your print from the hanging wire, and you’re done. Due to the thickness of the black board and mounting frame, your print is separated from the wall by 1.50″ Click here for mounting details.

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.

Lightning Striking Over Rollinsville Colorado

Lightning Striking Over Rollinsville Colorado Art Print

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 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,  4:00pm, June 13th, 2015.  13 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 Rollinsville Colorado, Gilpin County.  The snow covered continental divide is right below the lightning bolts hidden in the clouds.

Budweiser Power Fine Art Print

Budweiser Power Fine Art Print

Budweiser Power – Massive Lightning Thunderstorm all over the Anheuser-Busch Budweiser Brewery north of Fort Collins.

Lightning fact:  Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) endeavored to test the theory that sparks shared some similarity with lightning by using a spire which was being erected in Philadelphia. While waiting for completion of the spire, he got the idea to use a flying object such as a kite.

During the next thunderstorm, which was in June 1752, it was reported that he raised a kite. He was accompanied by his son as an assistant. On his end of the string he attached a key, and he tied it to a post with a silk thread. As time passed, Franklin noticed the loose fibers on the string stretching out; he then brought his hand close to the key and a spark jumped the gap.

This is Two images layered equal to a 30 sec exposure, f11, 75mm, ISO  100, WB tungsen.

Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills 4C Art Print

Lightning Striking Longs Peak Foothills 4

 

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

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, leave the same way 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.  There are 8 Lightning images in the series. This is number four. Here are my settings for this Lightning session. ISO 100 – 20sec – f5.6 – 28mm.
