New on 500px : Days End by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

Here is another image from Watson Lake that I photographed a few days ago. At this point, the storm had moved too far to the north to provide much of a spectacular cloud display, but it did create these wonderful rays that emanated from the cloud structure as the moon rose.

New on 500px : Summer Dells Sunset by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

There wasn’t much storm activity going on around Phoenix, so fellow photographer Nathaniel Smalley and I made a short trip up to Prescott’s beautiful Watson Lake. Driving up the I-17 it looked as if the entire town was being dumped on with rain. One of the largest rain shafts I have seen off in the distance. Getting closer, a couple sprinkles fell onto the roads, and with the sun breaking through, I knew there was a chance for rainbows. It wasn’t long after that we decided to head down a random dirt road and and capture the brilliant rainbow that seemed to last as long as the previous one. We still had about an hour until sunset and about a half hour from our intended destination. We quickly made our way up to the lake and just like last time, by the time we made it the rainbow had just began to vanish. Oh well, 3rd times a charm right? Moments later, the skies began to light up all around as the major storm system had moved further north. It was nice to get a couple of fresh images from here, and I am sure I will be back soon enough. This place is just too beautiful!

New on 500px : Fire Peaks by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

I was finally able to get out last night and work on some new photographs. Boy am I ever glad I decided to go here! I met up with fellow nature photographer Nathaniel Smalley and headed into the four peaks area in hopes to catch some monsoon storm action. Upon arrival, I had noticed a long arm of a rainbow stretching over the superstition mountains and stopped a few times to try and get a worth while photo (light was still too harsh). This same rainbow lasted for almost an hour and of course with my luck, had disappeared as soon as I had set up my gear. I saw the clouds and how the light was breaking through and knew that a sunset was coming, and a good one it was. The sky lit up in every direction with reds, oranges, pinks and purples. While we didn’t get any lightning, the light show more than made up for it.

New on 500px : Grand Canyon Lightning (Close-up) by BryanSnider by BryanSnider

A close up view of my “Grand Canyon Lightning” image that can be found here:

This image was captured from the desert view area of the Grand Canyon south rim. Storms kept coming into the canyon and then in an amazing way the canyon appeared to be stearing them.

Captured in July of 2013.

New on 500px : Over the Chiricahua Mountains by MikeOlbinski by MikeOlbinski

An early season monsoon thunderstorm lays down a great lightning strike over the Chiricahua Mountains in southeastern Arizona.

Not my best effort…ISO was too high, but the lightning had been further out before this bolt exploded nearby.

New on 500px : Monsoons and sunsets by PeteReynolds4 by PeteReynolds4

Anyone who has been to Nang Thong Beach recently will have walked past this lump of driftwood, as soon as I saw it i knew my 16-35mm would be sitting about 1m away from it at sunset.

I went to this location for 6 nights waiting to get this shot, I just managed to get all my camera gear into the bag before this monsoon hit with a vengeance!

New on 500px : Catching Monsoon Light by MarkMetternich by MarkMetternich

Taken on one of my “Chasing Monsoon Light in the great Southwest” workshops. One of those awesome definitive moments when my clients and I, all, caught the monsoon light very powerfully! Literally 3 minutes after the shot was taken we all ran to our cars as we got blasted with high wind, rain and even hail! Everyone vehamently agreed, it was worth it! 🙂

My processing techniques are shared on my Video Tutorials, and more about my unique adventure workshops can be found at my website WildForLight.com

As always feel free to FaceBook me. I share a lot of behind the scenes details there.

Thank you very much for looking! 🙂
