Arizona Monsoon Lightning

2012 was my first Monsoon season in southern Arizona.
Photographing lightning is like photographing the sunsets, every one is different.
I find this quote appropriate.
"The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take,
just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box." ~Henri Cartier Bresson
