During the summer monsoon season, morning storms that roll through Phoenix are a rarity. And it seems the weather service usually has an even harder time predicting them. So most of the time they are unexpected, which makes them so much more enjoyable and fun. Waking up to thunder, or a rainy drive into least for me, is one of the finer things in life.

This shot was taken last week from the 19th floor of my office building located on Central near Thomas. The main mountain you see just to the left of center on the horizon is Camelback. A gorgeous morning, it was so hard to pass up a sunrise that exploded light rays through dying storm clouds. Moments like this, with the light, shadows and clouds, are what HDR photography is made for. At of the reasons!
