Painted Lightning

Lightning over the high desert of Arizona near Winslow

So here it is, my favorite lightning image from my recent storm chasing trip to Arizona.  I titled this one Painted Lightning not because of the strike itself, but because it was over the painted desert.

To be honest, I have at least 100 other lightning strike images that I captured during my week in Arizona, and while I would have most likely shared them in the past, over the last few years I have gotten very selective as to what I decide “makes the cut” to be in my online galleries.  I think that the main reason for this is since I no longer live in the Arizona desert, the time that I get to spend there during monsoon season is somewhat special, and I want to share images that are a little more special to me.

I hope that you have enjoyed the series of images from the trip.  I had a great time capturing them and while I largely create these images for myself, I do enjoy all the feedback I get from everyone.

Now I just need some Washington thunderstorms to chase.
