Arizona Lightning

A dream of mine for a long time has been to see a lightning storm in Arizona. This year I finally had the opportunity to view this event and it was amazing! 

We left the Mogollan Rim to see flashing south of us. It seemed like forever before we found a spot where we could stop and get some lightning shots. This was an awesome experience, it brought with it good company, sweet Sonora Desert smells, and an intensity I've never seen in lightning filled storms before. This will always be in my heart...one of my favorite storm experiences. 

The following photographs are in order that they were taken. My favorite shot is at the bottom of the page.
