Summer Monsoon and Lightning from Yavapai Point
An afternoon monsoonal storm dumps heavy rain down into the Grand Canyon in this view from Yavapai Point Geology Museum. I heard thunder and did exactly what you're not supposed to do: I drove towards where the lightning was. Armed with my new Lightning Trigger IV, I drove to Yavapai Point Geology Museum where there seemed to be occasional lightning strikes. As you can see, the lightning I found proved to be very dangerous and close, so I took shelter in the museum and pressed the camera on a tripod right up against the windows looking out over the canyon. I waited for the trigger to do its thing, and here is the best result I had. I didn't want to be a lightning rod so I was happy to have shelter in the museum!
