Caption

High in the Santa Catalina Mountains, Tucson, Arizona on the Catalina Highway, an energetic summer thunderstorm discharges multiple cloud to ground and aerial lightning all around the photographer. Awesome and intense thunderstorms with powerful gust fronts, heavy rain, hail and lightning are common over the Arizona Desert during the summer months. Southwestern weather patterns create thunderstorms by pulling the fuel, moist air, either from the Pacific Baja side or the Gulf of Mexico and mixing it with the dry hot air rising up from the heated desert floor. Lightning is beautiful, but dangerous.
