The last few days have been brutal here in Arizona. No real monsoon activity and just flat out hot. So that means time to post a monsoon lightning shot in hopes of stirring up a storm.
This was caught a few months back near Apache Junction as I was headed home for the night. This turned out to be a bonus shot for me as I had already bagged a bunch of shots earlier. As I was driving back this cell started firing off to the north. I was fortunate enough to have a place to pull off and setup my camera.
As I was setting up I saw the power lines and hoped for a shot with them in the foreground. Five minutes in I got my wish. I like how the bolts are charging the power lines. Now if I can just get my wish for more monsoons!
Until next time…
