The Grand Canyon West is cloaked in the drama of an approaching summer storm. Photo taken with my Canon 5D mark II at the West Rim of the Canyon on the Hualapai Nation, Arizona United States of America.
This storm turned extremely intense with lightning, very heavy rain, dust devils and a large dust storm. The temperature dropped from 103 degrees to 63 degree in less than an hour. Smoke can be seen rising from a lightning strike the occured only moments before the image was captured.
