Spring Lightning Thunderstorms Time Lapse Video

Colorado thunderstorms kick up in the afternoon and as we go into the evening the lightning starts, here is a short time lapse.   One of the things I love about Colorado is the weather.  Of course it depends on where you live.  We live just a few miles from the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and the weather is much different  just 30 minutes up the Canyons.  Most of the time we are in sunshine while  it is snowing up in the mountains.   Of course people hear snow in Colorado and really don’t realize it is always snowing up in the high country.  Not that we don’t get our share… but the best part… it is gone quickly.

Summers are the best here.  A typical summer day starts with clear blue skies in the morning and by 1:00 pm in the afternoon the storms start to roll in.   Then we get some afternoon showers that cool things down just in time for a beautiful sunset.   The further east you go from the foothills the storms get a little more active and the lightning strikes start.  But as they always say…” if you don’t like the weather here… just wait ten minutes”.

Hope you enjoy this time lapse.  This is my 28th year catching lightning.  It really starts to take over my life in the spring and summer.  I was starting to get a little crazy cause this is the first real lightning storm I have caught this year,  So the fun begins….

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.
