Storm Light

Heavy clouds, thunder, lightning, and localized rain accompanied this storm. As is often the case in American's desert regions, there were openings in the cloud cover. Fortunately this all occurred not too long before sunset. This kind of situation is always serendipitous, but I was able to compose the photograph shown here using a 300mm prime lens.
