Ingram Road, north of Wilcox, AZ, on 09.02.18. This storm just wouldn't stop. Eventually it overtook me and the lightning was just too close for comfort and I had to head further south. #azmonsoon#storm#azwx
I had been chasing this storm cell as it was coming down from higher country, into the Phoenix Valley. It would actually be more accurate to say it was chasing me. I had to stop, photograph some then get ahead of it, stop and repeat. This was taken just south of Ben Avery shooting range, north of Phoenix on aug 13. I'm hoping that posting some more Monsoon photos will encourage one last round of storms to appear before everything dries up for good... #azmonsoon#storm#stormhour#canon6d#rokinon14mm#ig_stormclouds
The Road to Ajo.
July 8 was a fun storm chase which took me all the way down to Ajo, AZ. Just north of the small town in the middle of nowhere I could see the dust rising and engulfing the horizon, as the sun was beginning to set. I tried to timelapse the storm, but my intervalometer decided it was a good day to play tricks on me, so I ended up with only 30 shots. Great. #storm#azmonsoon#azwx#ajoaz
Stunning summer Monsoon storm sweeps over the West Valley of Phoenix on Sept 2. 800 individual frames, taken 1 second apart. Every time I watch it I see different things going on - on the ground, in the clouds, etc. #azwx#phoenix#storm#azmonsoon#sunset
Sunset on Saturday, down by Wilcox, AZ - looking west across the dry lake bed, south of Wilcox, AZ. The storm was bearing down on the Apache Generating Station, on hwy 191. Bolt after bolt it rained down as the storm came down over the mountains from the West. #azwx#azmonsoon#wilcox#canon6d#rokinon#lightning
Monsoon season isn’t quite over yet in the desert, and I’m not complaining. Love this rain! (Although of course I got my car washed yesterday before I knew it was going to storm) 🤷🏻♀️⛈🌵 #whyilovewhereilive
"Everyone should smile. Life really isn’t that serious. We make it hard. The sun rises. The sun sets. We just tend to complicate the process."

Nothing like a storm raining down lightning, but sometimes I really like a photo where the lightning is intra-cloud and simply lights up the scene, with no visible bolts. Which of these two do you like better? Both taken a few minutes apart on the north end of Sun Valley Parkway, on the West side of the White Tank Mountains, facing north. Storm was pounding down on Wickenburg, AZ. #azwx#azmonsoon
