Description

"Descension:" I went to capture the sunset from one of my favorite little coves in the Dells at Willow Lake in Prescott, AZ. I didn't think there would be a storm cell that would blow up right in front of me just after. In fact, I had already packed all of my camera gear away and closed down my tripod when I saw the first small bolt of electricity come from the rain cloud to the left. Hurriedly, I re-scanned the scene to anticipate the direction of the storm with respect the boulders in the foreground and of course, still wanting to get Granite Mountain in the distance. The sun having just set allowed the descending rain to reflect some reddish hues, while the rest of the sky was transitioning to that blue-hour tone. This particular single bolt came much closer than the others and took up most of the sky in my frame. I liked how the water reflected the brilliant flash into a sort of rippled explosion below.
