The evening of 8th of August was an extraordinary one up on A-Mountain on the western edge of Tucson. This was the same night with the sunset-rainbow-lightning combination and I actually have 2-3 more shots I will share at some point down the road.
This was when the color was just about gone, so I opted for B&W, which is one of my favorite ways to process lightning photos anyways. You gotta love Tucson with the city lights, but also majestic mountains right on the north and east sides of town. Makes for such an awesome skyline.
The monsoon is on a break now and I’m hoping and praying that we still have a few days left before the winds shift and I don’t get to shoot lightning for another 9 months!
