Thunderstorms On the Farm
Captured outside of Chief Hosa, Colorado. Some of you may have had about our crazy weather here in Colorado this summer with Tornado’s and all that jazz,….well, here is a story for ya all……
The storm you see in this photo is the very storm which would spawn a Tornado outbreak north of Denver and basically level the town of Windsor, Colorado. I drove through this storm while heading to Lake Dillon, to do some shooting, which is pretty high up in the mountains. While going through it in the mountains, I basically drove through a blizzard. I knew that if this storm kept heading East, it was going to be bad as Denver was warm and the humidity so high, 94% which is rare, because it usally stays at about 10%….all that and the storm colliding with said air makes for some dangerous conditions.
Heading back, after Lake Dillon, I detoured some when I saw this barn and just had to get it…the rain stopped for just a second, which added some nice atmosphere for the scene as a whole. Especially with those storm clouds! It was so quiet, almost spooky, just the thunder is all ya heard and the occasional Blackbird.
