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.

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.

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.

Signs of Summer

A thunderstorm rolling past the summit of the mountain to the north.
