From Wickenburg, AZ. , go South on Vulture Mine Rd. 11 miles.
Taken with Canon 5d Mk3, F-4, 1/6 sec., iso 100, Manfrotto Tripod. No lightning trigger.
This photograph was taken during an evening summer monsoon storm near the Vulture mines
That day, after spending the afternoon driving up and down old mining trails and washes I
came upon a vista that looked promising to photograph during sunset. As the sun set,
thunderclouds developed in the area and the lightning show began.
I love the way the camera caught the lightning, rain, and the sunlight coming in from the side
and behind the clouds, which turned this Arizona wilderness into a dramatic evening desert scene.
