Monsoon Thunderhead
« on: August 09, 2022, 11:26:46 am »

As I've said before, one of the great features of monsoon season here in Arizona is the magnificent cloud formations it brings. My estimate of this one is about 40-50 miles away and maybe that wide. About a half hour later we were seeing lightning flashes inside the cloud and bolts hitting the rim below.

Beautiful formationů It's like reading some Tom Hillerman's novels but with photos to go along with the text.
Thanks for this stunning shot, David.
