Monsoon Power
Monsoon Power
You just can't beat the lightning storms that form around Tucson, Arizona during the monsoon. I was jumping up and down for joy in the middle of the desert after this strike or strikes. I am not sure if both bolts hit at the same time or if there was a fraction of a second in between them. The total exposure was 15 seconds set at 43mm with an ISO of 100 at f/6.3. The bolt hit at 9:34pm on July 27, 2014. I am in the process of editing down the rest of the pictures along our 5,050 mile road trip from late July. Tucson wasn't the only incredible stop along the journey, but it was one of my favorites. August 2014 photo of the month.
