Monsoon Reflection

Sunset & Lightning Dance. I've wanted to capture lightning & sunset colliding at just the right moment in this spot for quite some time but the stars hadn't aligned for that until last night. The water in this image is from a farmer's retention pond so the area is usually dry. Nights like last night are the reason I love photography. It takes patience to wait for dancing lightning but as I waited, I got the reward of witnessing a surround sound sunset and feeling monsoon breezes breathe coolness to the desert after a hot summer day.
