Description Spectacular lightning thunderstorm striking above the BIG Red Barn at Lohr-McIntosh Farm and Agricultural Heritage Center on open space in Longmont Colorado, Boulder County. Lightning is not only spectacular, it's very very dangerous. Around 2,000 people are killed worldwide by lightning strikes each year. Hundreds more survive a strikes but suffer from a variety of lasting symptoms, including memory loss, dizziness, weakness, numbness, and other life-altering ailments. Cloud-to-cloud lightning discharges may occur between areas of cloud without contacting the ground. When it occurs between two separate clouds, it is known as inter-cloud lightning and when it occurs between areas of differing electric potential within a single cloud, it is known as intra-cloud lightning. Intra-cloud lightning is the most frequently occurring type of thunderstorm. These are most common between the upper anvil portion and lower reaches of a given thunderstorm. This lightning can sometimes be observed at great distances at night as so-called 'heat lightning'. In such instances, the observer may see only a flash of light without hearing any thunder. The 'heat' portion of the term is a folk association between locally experienced warmth and the distant lightning flashes.Colorado black and white with selective coloring fine art HDR nature landscape weather photography images by James Bo Insogna (C) - All Rights Reserved.
