Gates of Heaven Open At the Strike Of Lightning

It was a stormy night. At the blink of an eye,  Lightning bolts strike opening the gates to heaven... and then seconds later... it's gone.  This was one 30 second exposure image and one lightning strike forming the gates.  The rest is my Lightning fantasy.

Praying Monk a Lightning Thunderstorm Poster

After chasing the storm to the top of the Praying Monk and getting the Big bang Lightning halo... I readjusted and got this image. The Praying Monk is a rock formation on the side of the famous Camelback mountain that sits in between Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona.  From the first time I saw this I was always fascinated with it and thought It would make a great spiritual shot with lightning striking making the Monk come alive. This is a shot I worked on for three years. This is the real deal. I can not tell you how many times I went to my spot on the top side of this mountain and got nothing. This night was one of my most scariest nights chasing lightning.  Nothing like being on the top of a huge rock with a tripod trying to get a shot. This storm circled the mountains and swung around the back side and came back around to me. This was a very exciting night of chasing lightning.   Two texture layers added.

Praying Monk with Lightning Bolt Halo

The Praying Monk" is a rock formation on the side of the famous Camelback mountain that sits in between Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona.  From the first time I saw this I was always fascinated with it and thought It would make a great spiritual shot with lightning striking. This is a shot that I worked on for three years to get. This is the real deal.  I can not tell you how many times I went to my spot on the top side of this mountain and got nothing.  This night was one of my most scariest nights chasing lightning.  This was the first shot that got a little blown out it was an extreme bolt of energy. Nothing like being on the top of a huge rock with a metal tripod trying to get a shot for three years. This storm circled the mountains and swung around the back side and came back around to me.  This was a very exciting night of chasing lightning.  After this, I took off and did the chase to north Scottsdale. This is the first one of the five images in this series.   © 2011 James Insogna  1-888-682-0122

Horizontal Lightning Thunderstorm Weather Photography

This had to be one of the scariest lightning shoots I was every one.  This is one  burst of lighting. It would come out horizontally from nowhere.  At one point when I was on the side of this mountain all the hair on my body started to get static.  I could tell a charge was building and had to run for cover.  Luky for me I got the strike but did not get struck.  The original was shot on film.

Lightning At Horse World a Black and white Color fine art Print

Lightning At Horse World a Black and white Color fine art Print combination processing.  original shot on film. Lightning at Horse World. Sculpture by Snell Johnson. This is the real deal. This is NOT a composite image. When I first saw this sculpture I thought it would be incredible with lightning striking. For me it is like the lightning bolts hit and the Arabian horse reared, then the Quarter horse and Thoroughbred horse took off in different directions, making this all come alive. It took me years to get this shot. It was one of the most dangerous photo shoot I have done. After years of waiting for the storms to be in the right place at the right time.... one night it happened. I was shooting in North Scottsdale Arizona and I noticed the storm down here. So I bee lined it for this location. It was back in the day before all this area way built up. None of the houses were here. The 101 was not even started yet. I was standing in the middle of Pima road it was late so no cars. Back then people stayed home when these storms hit because of all the flash flooding and dips in the roads. So here I am shooting in the middle of the road with a medal tripod. The lightning strikes were extremely close. This was shot with a 50mm lens. About a 45 sec exposure. Water was running at my feet getting me wet. In the middle of the road with water at my feet and a medal tripod and lightning hitting feet away. But this is the Shot... this is the shot I have been waiting for for years. And it is happening. So I grin and bear it and hope of for the best. I can say my heart was racing. Did not even know if I would get the shot or get killed. Well I got the shot. One on color and one in Black and white. This is my favorite. I love horses so this was a dream shot for me. Hope you enjoy it. Buy a print... save a storm chaser LOL! I tell my customers the day I get struck these prints are going to be worth a lot more than you paid for them. Not that I am hoping for it. Been close.... and would like to keep it that way.

Americans are twice as likely to die from lightning than from a hurricane, tornado or flood.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) estimates there are 200 deaths and 750 severe injuries from lightning each year in the U.S.

20% of all lightning victims die from the strike.

70% of survivors will suffer serious long-term effects.

Annually, there are more than 10,000 forest fires caused by lightning.
