Summer Shower N Arizona
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|In July & August the deserts of the SW US have what they call "monsoon season." It is nothing compared to real Asian monsoons--the definition is 3 consecutive days of measurable precipitation. But it does provide the Sonoran Desert with its second yearly season of moisture and is important to the rhythm of desert life.|
This is just one small shower-cloud in the larger seasonal event.
Post-processing limited to sharpening and contrast adjustment. I did a black & white version of this shot with a more severe crop, but the color version seems to be more popular.

There you were out in the middle of the desert, just you and your camera...what a wonderful combination and photo, James!
This landscape is superb with great detail, color, lighting and dramatic scenery. Well done and thank you.
