Unlike many parts of the country where convective cells are commonly cloaked in clouds, it’s a special feature of the dry Southwest that thunderstorms most often dominate the sky in solitude or line up to deliver dramatic walls of slate-grey rain.
I captured this solitary “Painted Desert Thunderstorm” on an early-morning flight from Flagstaff to Santa Fe, on a flight associated with my June, 2012 Flying Carpet column, “Perfect Use of an Airplane.”
“Painted Desert Thunderstorm,” debuts in Limited Edition 27″x40″ and 24″x36″ prints, and Open Editions of 16″x24″ and 10″x14″. Print prices start at $175. See detailed pricing and ordering information.
Like all my Views from the Flying Carpet, this photograph was collaboratively tuned for print with Master Photographic Printer Richard Jackson, who prints for the world’s finest photographers. Each individual print is meticulously crafted, matted and/or framed, and packaged for shipping under Mr. Jackson’s supervision.
