Thunderstorm over Mt Elden


18 Aug 2014 northeast of Flagstaff Arizona.

I was on the east side of the ridge, so didn't get much warning about this thunderstorm coming from the west. A few minutes later, I got caught in quite a thunderstorm with hail. The hail was big enough to sting a bit when it hit me, even thru a shirt. Getting under a tree didn't help much, and the real problem was trying not to be a lightning target.

The image actually didn't come out this badly, I had to reduce the quality since I always shoot RAW.

I took this in the morning, when I looked out my window and saw the sun behind the clouds. Setting a high shutterspeed is what made the clouds look dark.
