Tucson, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Amazing sky last night in Tucson...one of my best lightning captures to-date. There is a rainbow in there too on the edge of the right bolt, hard to see with the orange color from the sunset :)


Image Description: A lightning bolt strikes in the heart of Tucson during a beautiful monsoon sunset. It's not super easy to make out, but there is a rainbow going into the sky along the right bolt.
