July 1st - Denver Lightning

I was supposed to be packing for my trip to Montana tonight ... *sigh*

The plan was to go to City Park and try and shoot the Denver skyline with the storms coming off the mountains, but I've always wanted to check out the parking garage at Colorado Center, so I did that instead. It worked out pretty well, actually. When it began to rain, I was able to to go a lower level and stay dry. Even the security guard was chill with my presence. I took 106 photos and ended up with only 3 that actually had a stroke of lightning (two are below).

A zoomed view of downtown.


So, I have to be at work in less than 7 hours ... haven't packed yet ... so I better get to it! See you all when I get back ... if anything interesting happens, I may try and update.

Oh yeah, did I mention I'm working 8 hours tomorrow and then driving 12 hours to Montana? Should be a fun day ...

Awesome location! I see what you mean in the potential by your first shot. I remember a restaurant on the way to Golden just before you get into the foothills that has a similar view but facing E. Can't think of the name but would be an awesome spot to get a nice shot of the city and esp. with the backside of something moving out over Aurora.

India: Thanks for stopping by!

Paul: Thanks man. I'm going to remember this place next time we get a real vigorous storm coming through.

Have a good trip homeboy! Wish I could chase Saturday as it looks to be a decent summer set up here locally.
