Summers in Arizona bring more than just extreme heat. A weather phenomena called "the monsoon season" bring heavy rains, wind, and killer thunderstorms. Getting out to photograph can be tricky during this time. Heavy rain and lighting can be dangerous causing flash floods or even fires, not to mention the chance of getting struck by lightning. But capturing the elements has it's risks. So when my phone receives a weather alert I usually only have so much time to grab my gear and head out. With thunderstorms building above, The ominous looking Superstition Mountain looks perfect.
