I didn’t have plans to grab storm shots tonight, as the forecast called for storms mainly west of Tucson. Since we’re in the southeast corner of the city, I figured we’d see some lightning off in the distance that I would find quite beautiful, but not really picture worthy.

Mother Nature likes to keep me on my toes. A small storm cell formed over the east side of the city, about 3-5 miles just to the east of our neighborhood. It didn’t throw out any precipitation, but boy did it give us some great lightning.

Here’s a snap I grabbed within 30 seconds of going out.

And here’s some video I grabbed about two minutes later.

I plan on writing about more things tomorrow. I’m just having so much fun during this Monsoon Season.
