Weathering the Storm

I have to admit, there are very few times I like the weather here in AZ. Its generally miserably hot and the light can be incredibly harsh- leaving folks to book shoots at 6am half the year.

But during the monsoon season, the weather becomes a bit less harsh and a lot more surprising. We get a reprieve from the heat- and down comes the rain.

The rain out here is not quite like what the rest of the country thinks it is. Its sporadic and unpredictable. I have seen a large storm miss whole sides of the valley, and I have seen one side of a road be drenched, and the other bone dry.

Cooling and life giving, we spend most of the year begging for the rain. And when we get it, its a beautiful thing!
