Cloaked in the Drama of the Approaching Storm by 

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.

Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
