North Metro Fire Rescue Station

Jun 30th 2011, Boulder County Colorado.  What a great stormy day.  Colorado weather at it's best with a great storm in the afternoon going into the night keeping the temperatures down.  The Lightning Storm chase started off in north Boulder County heading west to highway 36 on the foothills from Lyons (hoping for some images looking east from HWY 36)  then heading south towards boulder.  As I made my way west at about 8:15 pm I got out of the rain and on the side of the storm, perfect!  There were some great Lightning crawlers but they were spaced at about 15 minutes apart making them very hard to catch on camera.  Most of the major strikes seem to be hitting south of Lafayette and into Denver.   I have certain shot compositions  that I am working on so I had to see if everything would be in the right place at the right time but no luck and wasted some time.  So I started off with a sunset on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in North Boulder County hoping for a lightning strike.  Next I headed back east on Nelson Road and then south on 95th street making a stop at Lookout Rd again hoping to get something good.  The burst of lightning were incredible but spaced too far a apart in different direction making it hard to get on camera.    The last stop was south of Louisville in 95th street south of Dillon Road with great Lightning burst.  This shot is North Metro Fire Rescue Station #67 and spider lighting crawlers and one cloud to ground Strike. Just wish I would have gotten here a little earlier.

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.
