Tucson's Heavy Pounding

More from today's downpour.

From my OTHER blog:
This is the thunderstorm complex that marched into Tucson today and knocked out power to thousands. It downed trees, drowned cars (especially that knucklehead who tried to drive under the Stone Avenue bridge), and made rush hour traffic intolerable. I snapped this from my car as it came over the Santa Rita mountains east of Green Valley, a town that also got clobbered today. I managed to stay high and dry today but was able to capture about 50 cool shots of this event.

Click on the image and see the saguaros and cholla cacti all around. You know you're in southern Az when!

If only I had a bit wider of an angle...

Very striking photos...very interesting how a storm looks in your area..in upstate NY the skies are not nearly as dramatic..great job.

Fantastic pictures! You create through photography, I create through words. I wish you the best of luck with your photography. I think you will do quite well.

Love the pictures. Makes me wish I would have stayed out west. My visit way way too short and really loved it. Great photos. Very breath taking.

I love the second last one. The contrast of the light and dark clouds is spectacular.
