Sometimes the only way to capture an amazing scene is with many, many photos. This is a 10-image stitch of a gust front moving over the Rincon Mountains and Benson area on July 27th.

You can make out the gust front as it curves from the right side of the photo, to the left and then back towards the mountains and to the right again. That is basically an outflow/gust front boundary and as it moved across in front of us. This kind of thing is pretty awesome to see in general, but toss in an amazing sunset and it becomes 100 times better!

I was trying to take photos of it and realized one wide angle, 16mm wouldn’t at all capture it completely. So I went vertical and took 10 shots from left to right.
