Budweiser Anheuser Busch Lightning Thunderstorm HDR

Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado.  This was the Budweiser Storm chase on June 22, 2009. Chased this storm from North Boulder County to the Wyoming border. It was an incredible storm because I was able to stay just on the end of it  just out of the rain and stayed with it all the way north along the Rocky Mountain Front Range.   The whole time looking for great compositions for me it is Lightning Photography as Fine Art.  This was like the holy grail when I came up on it in the middle of nowhere.  When I first set up my camera the lightning bolts were hitting all over.  You could not tell what direction was next.  Very scary.  So I would hit my shutter and then sit in the back of the SUV with my feet off the ground, that's how worried I was. Safety FIRST! Then when it headed north I was able to shoot with ease.  Lot of great shots came out of this Stormy night.    HDR version.  Striking fine art lightning photography by James Insogna   1-888-682-0122

About BoulderCountyPhotographer

James "Bo" Insogna was Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA. He studied with the New York Institute of Photography. He Started his photography career 1984. He opened a studio in Boulder, Colorado downtown on the Boulder mall. Shooting for local newspapers, magazines, Skiing, Bicycling, models portfolios and some commercial work. In 1987 the economy got bad in Boulder so he decided to make a move to Scottsdale Arizona. Once in Arizona, He became a staff photographer for the Phoenician Arabian Horse Magazine doing the covers, inside lay outs and a two page spread called Bo Trek. In the late 1980's - 1990's he was a respected member of the Arabian Horse Community in Arizona, chosen to photograph champions, riders, trainers and owners. From the first Arizona lightning monsoon season, Bo very quickly became a Lightning Storm Chaser. Striking-Photography.com, www.ArizonaLightning.com and aka www.TheLightningMan.com was born. A very fun, exciting and dangerous job! Since 1987 he has spent many years pursuing elusive lightning storms spanning miles of natural desert. It takes great dedication, courage and desire to grip a metal camera upon a metal tripod astride mountain peaks with lightning crashing mere paces away. His prints reflect the courage and passion he feels for his art. He has been featured on television and in print. In 1991 The VVA honored him by choosing his Photograph "Operation Desert Storm" as the official print of the Arizona Desert Storm Memorial Fund. The men and the flag represent the "Operation" and the Victory and Liberation of Kuwait. The Saguaro represents the "Desert" and the men and women who served in the Gulf. The Lightning represents the "Storm" and the Air War with swift, precise strikes. Twenty years after leaving Boulder, Bo decided to relocate his family back in Colorado. He settled in Boulder County.
