Skylight by kkart Skylight by kkart
I am a sucker for storm photography, I absolutely love photographing it and seeing a large storm at night from the mountains here in Colorado isn't exactly a very common sight to witness. So goes this storm. A stunning supercell which was moving out of the Colorado Rockies and onto the plains this past summer. It was happening so quick that I honestly had a hard time keeping up with all the lightning flashes. I can't wait until this coming spring and summer when I get to photograph it all over again!

This is beautiful, this past summer my mom and I flew through a storm like this, I'm sure I was sweating a little about it but I was excited to see it because it looked so cool, God was really looking out for us on that day.

What part of Colorado was this? I was born in Loveland and grew up in Fort Collins/Loveland/Boulder. Terrific shot, and I love and miss the lightning there.

This looks more like a piece of art, a painting, which of course is a high compliment. Very ominous. Love the raspberry color in the clouds around the lightning.

Whoa, John! That is a wonderful capture! And i know what you mean about capturing lightning...it is so fast and random, unless you have a wild field to work with, you never know when or more directly, where it will strike next! I love the halo of angry pinks and purples surrounding it.
