Storm Chasing – A Day In the Life of a Lightning Catcher

A day in the life of a lightning catcher professional photographer Bo Insogna – – 06.27.2016. Music by MK2. Check out this time lapse of storms coming in from the NW over the Colorado Rocky Mountains heading east with a camera view to the west and camera view to the eastern plains. Beams of sunshine coming down, then watch the sun fall out of the sky, finishing up with some lightning strikes. I would have gotten more lightning images but ended up with a dead battery… stuck in the middle of nowhere and had to be rescued by my son. It’s all good.

Rollinsville Colorado Afternoon Lightning Thunderstorm Time Lapse


Afternoon thunderstorms roll in to the high elevation in the Colorado Rocky Mountains almost on a daily basis in the late spring into summer. Lightning strikes once or twice and  also moves in and out pretty fast. Mostly in the early or late afternoon time of day. It is vary hard to catch a still shot without a lightning trigger.  At this time I do not use one nor have I ever used one.  This is the first image that I have caught lightning in the high elevation of the mountains. Watch the storm tracking and really though this was a good chance and it happened according to plan.  It only took me 8 years but it finally worked out.

4:00pm, June 13th, 2015.  This date and the number thirteen is a lucky number in our family because it is my sisters Kathie’s birthday. She passed away a few years ago so I can only think she had something to do with this image. Happy Birthday Kathie!

This is a view of lightning striking over the very small rustic town of Rollinsville Colorado, Gilpin County.  The snow covered continental divide is right below the lightning bolts.  The red building is the famous Stage Stop.

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….
