Grand Canyon Lightning

Grand Canyon Lightning

Lightning strikes in the Grand Canyon in Arizona during the 2017 monsoon season

I have been shooting lightning for almost 30 years. Yeah, I know, I’m getting old and this just helps date myself, but it’s a simple fact, I have been doing this a long time. In those years I have captured lightning on film.  I’ve captured it on slides.  I’ve captured it with digital cameras.  I have been fortunate enough to capture it over cities, forests and deserts.  I have captured it in quite a few different states but the one thing I had never been able to do was capture it in the Grand Canyon.  That was until this past summer during the Arizona monsoon where I captured this shot, Grand Canyon Lightning.

You can really say that this has been a “bucket list” image of mine for many years.  I can now check this off as something I have never done, and while this was my first lightning strike image in the Grand Canyon, I really hope that it isn’t the last.

Update: Since initially publishing this blog post I found out that this image was selected as the winner of the Stormhour Photo of The Week.  I am truly humbled to have won this.
