Huge lightning bolt lights up the landscape over the Colorado plains.
The storms that resulted in serious flooding over parts of southeast Colorado last night also put one heck of a light show last night. I spent about half an hour taking close to 100 5-20 second exposures from in back of my house, looking southward towards Pueblo. Almost every shot captured a lightning bolt, but this one above was extra huge–so bright it lit up the prairie for a brief second. To give you an idea of just how powerful this one strike was, the first shot was probably the second strongest of the nearly 100 strikes I captured. Quite an electric night!
