High elevation mountain light during the summer thunderstorm season can be utterly sublime. This particular evening in Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park, Colorado, was one of the special times when thunderstorms rolled past creating some magical conditions. I've become somewhat adept (or lucky) at predicting weather conditions, but this particular evening even surprised me. My primary focus for this trip was shooting the sunset over the Never Summer Mountain Range. It was early July which is the best time of the summer in the Park to have the tundra plants at full bloom. I was so fully engaged on shooting the tundra flowers with backlit sunlight, I nearly missed how the sunlight was effecting the clouds to the north. As soon as I saw the clouds light up, I scrambled to find a decent foreground to capture the scene unfolding before me. Luckily, I didn’t have to go too far and hastily snapped off several photos before the this dramatic scene ended. It certainly was one of many really good memories from 2019!
