A massive lightning monsoon thunderstorm in North Scottsdale, Arizona. A scenic view of the famous zip code 85255, Pinnacle Peak, Reata Pass Area. . Many giant lightning bolts from high clouds striking the ground with mountains and city lights. A long 1024 second exposure. ISO 100 – f.7.1. This is a blast from the past and my old stomping grounds before the BUILD BABY BUILD people ruined it.
Pinnacle Peak, Arizona, surrounded by lightning bolts. Lightning striking on both sides and above during a monsoon thunderstorm. 25 sec exposure, one strike. This was shot on film back when I used to shoot with bulb and let go after something big happened.
I have seen some of the most amazing lightning strikes up here. North Scottsdale above the valley in elevation of about 2,000 ft. Back in the day this was not even North Scottsdale it just way out in the desert… the boonies.
