Last Day Lightning

This picture of lightning striking somewhere below was the last photo I took on my last day working on top of Pikes Peak on my way to the van down.

Couple at Sunrise

A couple looks out to the sun coming over a sea of clouds covering the Colorado Springs area from the Pikes Peak Summit. I did not take this picture – it was taken by the Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway’s webcam and was edited by me.

Shadowy Sunset

These photos were taken after the “Vertical Rainbow” series, focusing on the shadow of the mountain appearing in the purple clouds as the sun dips below the mountain.

Vertical Rainbow Part II

After the storm passed through and during the middle of when I was photographing the vertical rainbow, the mountain goats (?) made their nightly visit to the summit for food.

I had to almost hide around the south facing side of the summit house to take these photos as the animals scare pretty easily.
The mountain goat (?) enjoying the view.

Vertical Rainbow

The after affect of having a huge thunderstorm blow past the mountain. While the west side of Colorado Springs was getting pounded by rain, we had clear blue skies and a fantastic view of this rainbow.

The entire storm moving its way into Colorado Springs.
Didn’t make this shot a panoramic in order to give more attention to the magnificent rainbow shooting out of the storm cloud.
