This time of year the desert cries out for rain. Finally . . . The monsoon arrives!

Photograph was taken from the base station at Mt. Hopkins, Santa Rita Mountains, outside Green Valley, Arizona, USA. This monsoon storm was heading through the desert floor toward Green Valley AZ.

    What a wonderful catch of the storm coming thru!! They come in and then they are gone so you caught it just right!!

  • Icesrun thank you. It was a matter of timing for sure. Glad that I wasn’t in the storm at the time as they can produce heavy rains in a short amount of time.
