Mcintosh Farm Lightning Thunderstorm View
Lohr-McIntosh farm Agricultural Heritage Center, homestead in 1868 on Boulder County open space in northwest Longmont Colorado. The Barn, Silo, Windmill and cattle run with a lightning monsoon thunderstorm striking over head. This was an incredible storm that started building in the afternoon on a very hot summer day with temps in the high 90s. A very fun night for chasing lightning.
Colorado Fine art nature landscape lightning weather photography and stock images by storm chaser James Bo Insogna http://www.BoInsogna.com
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. Lovin Life in Boulder County!
