Rare photograph of two covective thunderstorms with actrive cloud to ground lightning at sunset over the Arizona Sonoran Desert west of Tucson, AZ during the summer 'monsoon' season. Distant thunderstorm (L) in orange (from the sunset) is partially obscured by the close thunderstorm which dominates the middle to the right edge of the frame.  Original photograph was taken on 35mm color slide film, Fujichrome Velvia ISO 50 with a Canon T-90 with a SSC 200mm f/2.8 lens set at f/8, time exposure.  Original digitized by Kent Wood on a Epson 4870 scanner.  This is not a 'Photoshopped' image, multiple colors are natural, they are the result of the thunderstorms, sunset and reflected city light in the clouds.
