And Then There Was Lightning

Today’s post is to spur on our forecast for the weekend.  The weather man is calling for storms today and tomorrow here in Phoenix.  So to encourage that activity I thought I would post a lightning strike from July.

This was taken from Fountain Hills which is to the northeast of Phoenix.  The town sits higher in elevation and provides a good vantage point when the conditions are right.  On this particular night the lightning was going crazy right up until I made it to this spot.   After I got out and set up there was a huge lull in the action.  I was about to give up when this strike popped.  I wound up with a handful of others but this one was the best of the bunch.

Until next time…
