Desert Storm

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Jeff Berkes

The monsoon season kicks off in the desert southwest in July and August. Numerous showers and thunderstorms roam the open landscape bringing relief to many different types of life. This lightning bolt started out over my head and ended up striking the ground only 800 feet in front of me.

Location: Monument Valley, Utah/Arizona
