A double lightning strike hits Phoenix Arizona.

The monsoons were in full force again last night as a strong series of storms rolled through the Phoenix area. 

We’ve had two nights in a row where the Phoenix suburbs have been pounded with monsoon storms.  It makes it nice not to have drive 70 miles to find lightning for a change. The strike pictured above was taken from Tempe looking towards Phoenix.

July has started off with a bang here in terms of lightning and monsoon type weather.  Let’s hope it holds.

Until next time…

  1. Dude, this is seriously wicked. The city at the bottom adds such a feeling of immense size to the lightning. Also, I don’t think I want to break this to see who gets their wish granted.

  2. Wow nice shot! It’s been a great past couple nights!

  3. Great shot, and thanks for posting these so quickly, I am living vicariously though you guys. :-)

  4. Amazing capture here, Chris. A true wishbone. 😉

    Outstanding timing to get this, man.

  5. Awesome capture Chris! Great work!

  6. What an awesome, awesome capture Chris! Well done.
