Timelapse of a large monsoon storm dropping rain on Phoenix AZ. A small wet microburst seems to appear on north side (right side of video).

Monsoon lightning rains down on the Rincon Mountains of southern AZ.

A fun portrait for my oldest who is a swimmer.

Last nights chase started late as a series of storms near Coolidge AZ began to explode. I decided to head east as the storms had potential to wrap around the Superstition Mountains. As I waited the storms south began dropping bolts sporadically. I was able to get a few before the outflow winds forced me from my spot. They got intense enough that I could no longer keep my camera still to shoot. I tried moving to a different location with hopes of getting out of some of the wind, but had no luck. Of course I had to leave without a shot of the Superstitions. Bummed on that one but there will be more days to chase.

A storm chasing trip to Tucson yesterday didn't pan out like I had hope. No lightning (boo!) but I did manage to catch this full rainbow from a top of A mountain. The outflow from storms coming from the east and off of the Catalina Mountains created some serious wind. I tried to get a time lapse but I'm not sure if its going to be too wobbly from the wind. As @jeffbeamish calls it, the Sonoran Wind machine was in full effect. Here's to a new day of chasing!

A little light show from Mother Nature last night. Captured near Sonoita AZ. Monsoon 2107 is here!

AZ sunsets rock!

When you walk into a venue and your first reaction is "Whoa". Bass Performance Hall was stunning as a backdrop for McKenzie and Michael's first dance. Amazing job by wedding planner @plpvintagechic putting this together.

Yesterday's sunset show from Mother Nature. A little outflow action in there from a dying #haboob that didn't quite make it into Phoenix. The #monsoon is underway in AZ.

Hanging out with my oldest at Harry Potter World. #universalstudioshollywood

Congrats to Chris & Leah! Such a special day and I can't thank them enough for letting me photograph it.
