Summer Lightning Storms

I LOVE summer storms in the desert. There’s nothing like them — the hot wind starts to pick up and the thunderheads start building off in the distance. Local pilots call them “Thunderbumpers” because they make the air extremely bumpy, which is an adventure in a small airplane. By the evening, the temperature, wind, and humidity are just right and the clouds unleash an electric light show that has to be seen to be believed.

We didn’t get as many of these this year as we have in years past, but the times I was able to get out and photograph the lightning I got some great stuff. Check these out!
