North American Monsoon - markhumpage
Monsoon downpours were intense, unleashing one foot of rain in an hour. The Arizona landscape was a perfect backdrop for images. The nature of the land was also conducive to major flash flooding. Timing and positioning were crucial to get shots like this. The intensity and crispness of the precip shaft is what I was after here. Minutes later flash floods would have stranded us, if we had stayed put.
