Storm Clouds in Arizona

#1 Taken September 6, 2014 in San Tan Valley, Arizona.

Taken by me during Monsoonal storm that dropped 7+ inches of rain in four hours. Looking straight up at Zenith at break in the cloud cover.

Monsoons in Arizona run from early July through Mid–September, so this was a bit late, it’s as though nature held its most vigorous storm of the season for the last blow.

#2 Arizona Sunset, May 20, 2018; interesting cloud formation and lighting. What is interesting is that I’m shooting facing DUE NORTH, not WNW towards the setting Sun! Not sure why the light dispersed as it did, it was sorta spooky.
