30 Years of Lightning

This book is the collection of over 30 years of chasing and photographing lightning throughout southern Arizona, from the border of Arizona near Mexico, north to the city of Casa Grande, east to the city of Benson, and west to the Baboquivari Mountains. For the lightning photographer, the inherent dangers and unpredictability of the storms and the lightning are easily outweighed by the beauty, power, and the challenge of capturing a photograph of lightning coursing across the sky. Enjoy the diverse, colorful, and beautiful lightning photographs, as well as a fascinating amount of information regarding the science, statistics, myths, and stories about lightning.
