More Than Hot Air

October 06, 2013  •  3 Comments

When people think of Arizona, they think of corpses bloating in the desert sun then exploding with virulent hot air before drying into leathery satchels of nothingness.  But its more than just McCain and Kyl down here, we do get some refreshing monsoon rains in late summer, and with the monsoons come the impressive thunderheads without which we probably would have no Arizona Highways calendars.   Dkish and I are off on a three-month road trip to the Southeast - hellyeah!  But before delving into shots from that I want to share a few Arizona cloud shots from a great day at Mormon Lake.

This is the shot I come here for - a hawk riding the updrafts above Mormon Lake with a thunderhead background.

 

Next, cue the monsoon rains.

 

Add some lightning over Sunset Crater.

 

Give Mount Elden a bit of love.

 

Then rock another cool Arizona sunset.

 

Cheers,

Verm

I also love the last one. Would it insult you if I told you I wanted it as my desktop wallpaper? :-)
