Caption

A pair of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and a looping aerial discharge from a summer thunderstorm silhouette the A Mountain in the Tucson Mountains, west of Tucson, Arizona, in this long-exposure photograph. The Arizona desert experiences many intense thunderstorms, with powerful gust fronts, heavy rain, hail and lightning, during the summer months. The storms are caused by moist air from the Pacific Baja or the Gulf of Mexico mixing with hot, dry air rising up from the heated desert floor.
