Storm Chasing Near Safford, AZ – June 29th, 2018

The Beginning of Monsoon 2018!

There is something about the beginning of the monsoon.  The smell of rain and the sound of thunder are once again pleasing my senses.  Throw in some sunset lightning, and it’s a heck of a start!

Like 2017, I found myself on Highway 191 (between Safford and Willcox, Arizona) watching a factory of storms move off of Mount Graham into the valley.

For nearly three hours, my buddy Greg McCown and I watched storm after storm coming off of the mountains.  Then at Sunset, we witnessed the most amazing colors on top of the mountain as well as lightning bolts backlit by sunset colors. 

In this photo is a picture of Greg and me shortly after arriving at our spot for the night.  I have a lot of fun chasing with Greg.  He’s a great guy and also shoots Nikon.  Hidden in this picture is one sony video camera…can you spot it?!

Anyways, make sure you check out Greg’s work! His twitter handle is @GregTucson on Twitter.

Grand Canyon Lightning

Lightning over the Grand Canyon at Sunset

One of my “bucket list” shots for the 2013 monsoon season was to capture Grand Canyon lightning.  Little did I know, it would only take a few weeks into the season for me do it! Honestly I was going to do whatever it took to capture an image like this, but on the other hand I was realistic with myself and knew it could take some time if not years.
