Phoenix monsoon sunset

 Mesa AZ July 12, 2008

Every year we welcome the short rainy season in Phoenix with a great deal of anticipation and caution.  The rain comes in the form of monsoons.  The monsoons provide strong winds, significant precipitation and extended lightening shows.  This weather formation creates unusual clouds that generate incredible sunsets.  I captured the images below last week while I was driving back to Mesa during the late summer evening.
