Afternoon Rollinsville Lightning Thunderstorms

Afternoon thunderstorms roll in to the Colorado Rocky Mountains high elevation almost on a daily basis in the late spring into summer. Lightning strikes once or twice and 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 in the day especially when it is random and does not hit more then a couple times. At this time I do not use one nor have I ever used one. 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. This is the first image that I have caught lightning in the high elevation of the mountains. Was watching 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 the small town of Rollinsville, Colorado, Gilpin County. The snow covered continental divide is to the right of the lightning bolts. Setting on this image – Canon 6D - ISO 50 – I sec – f22 – 40mm.
