Lightning storms have the potential to be unnerving when you are camped in the mountains. In 2018 we experienced several significant lightning storms while we were in the mountains, and I decided to try capturing some photographs of one storm.
Rocky Mountain National Park is defined by epic views. Waterfalls, sweeping vistas, and rugged mountain peaks are perfectly complemented by spring and early summer wildflowers in the meadows.
