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.

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. Lucky for me I got the strike but did not get struck. The original was shot on film. (C) 2011 James Insogna
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.
