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.

Thunderstorm on the Colorado Plains Panorama

Thunderstorm on the Colorado Plains Panorama

Lightning thunderstorm with cloud to ground lightning striking out on the plains of North Boulder County, Colorado.   Mother Nature putting on a great show, this is better than fireworks any day.

Cloud-to-ground lightning bolts are very common, about 100 strike the Earth’s surface every single second—and their power is extraordinary. Each bolt can contain up to one billion volts of electricity.  YIKES!
