A couple of deer grazing on the springtime plains of the Colorado Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. Scenic view of of the sand dunes and Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. Black and white photograph with selective color.
Wildlife of the park and preserve includes pikas, bighorn sheep, black bears, mountain lions, beavers, badgers, bison, pronghorn, birds such as ptarmigan, peregrine falcons, owls, eagles, and herons, and reptiles such as lizards and snakes. Fish encountered in the park’s streams include the Rio Grande cutthroat trout and suckers. Insects such as beetles are common as well.
The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America, rising about 750 feet (230 m) from the floor of the San Luis Valley on the western base of the Sangre de Cristo Range, covering about 19,000 acres (7,700 ha). Researchers say that the dunes started forming less than 440,000 years ago.
The dunes were formed from sand and soil deposits of the Rio Grande and its tributaries, flowing through the San Luis Valley. Over the ages, glaciers feeding the river and the vast lake that existed upon the valley melted, and the waters evaporated. Westerly winds picked up sand particles from the lake and river flood plain. As the wind lost power before crossing the Sangre de Cristo Range, the sand was deposited on the east edge of the valley. This process continues, and the dunes are slowly growing. The wind changes the shape of the dunes daily. (Source: wiki)

When you’re finished, simply reattached each cap, and you’re done. The mounting posts act as stand-offs and keep your print separated from the wall by 1″. All of the required mounting hardware (i.e. posts, screws, and wall anchors) is included with your print.

Bo Insogna was born in Pittsburgh, PA. A full time Professional Photographer in Boulder County Colorado. A Professional Portrait Photographer, Commercial, Stock Photography, Storm Chaser and Nature Lover.
He studied with the New York Institute of Photography. In 1984 Bo opened a commercial studio in downtown Boulder, Colorado, shooting for local businesses, magazines and newspapers. He also had the opportunity to shoot for the Bicycle Guide Magazine for the “Coors International Bicycle Classic”
In 1987 the economy in Colorado got bad and Bo decided to make a move to Scottsdale Arizona. While there he was the head staff photographer for the “Phoenician Arabian Magazine” doing the covers and a column “Bo Trek”. He had the pleasure to photograph beautiful Arabian Horses, riders and trainers.
Also that year was the first time Bo witness and photographed spectacular lightning storms and became a Storm chaser. Thus Arizona Lightning, TheLightningMan and Striking Photography By Bo was born. A lot has changed, back then they were shooting film and there was only a handful of lightning photographers. Many of the new ones have contacted and been inspired by Bo’s Lightning Work.
One of Bo’s images “Operation Desert Storm” was chosen by The Arizona Vietnam Vets for the Desert Storm Memorial Fund.
In 2007 Bo moved back to Colorado landing In Longmont Colorado, Boulder County just outside of Boulder opening a Home Studio.
His day job is a family and commercial photographer. Striking Photography by Bo. Pet photography, children photo’s, family portraits, senior portraits, professional head shots, model portfolios, commercial, stock photography, food and product.
His Night job is chasing lightning aka TheLightningMan.com and fine art nature landscape photography. His prints have been purchased from collectors from all over the world and have been featured on Television, Magazines, Newspapers, Books and licensed for all kinds of media.
One of Bo’s images was even purchased and licensed to The Hit TV show “In Plain Sight” . He also had the honor of being feature in the Russian Version of “Photographer Magazine”
There are shots that have been worked on for many years just to get the storm to be in the right place at the right time? and even more ? Bo being in the right place at the right time. His gear is always ready to go and when the crack of thunder sounds, it is his calling to get out and chase a storm. In other words when everyone is running inside ( and you should) it is out the door into the thick of things for Bo. It is more than just getting a shot of a lightning bolt? it is about getting an interesting and artistic shot of lightning.
“Lightning at Horseworld” took two years to get. “The Praying Monk Lightning Storm” took three years to get. And the most amazingly the shot of the year being worked on “Lightning and The Cross” took only 20 minutes! Somethings are meant to be.
Please make no mistake, it is extremely exciting to catch some lightning bolts on camera and is even an incredible rush? but it can be extremely dangerous. So if you decide you want to be a ?storm chaser? be aware of your surroundings and have the right gear.
There have been a few times all the hair on his body stood up and he knew there was a charge building, there have also been many situations he has crawled out of. When the Budweiser Storm images happened, that was a chase that almost took him from Boulder County to Wyoming. At the start of that photo shoot: First, the remote on the camera would get hit. Next, he would jump in the back of the SUV with his feet off the ground with comfort of four rubber tires for safety. It was the most erratic lightning he has ever seen. Scary stuff. You could not tell where the bolts were going to hit next. Front of you, behind you or on top of you! So safety is always number one.
