Monsoon Madness ◆ Thunderstorms of the Southwest

Monsoon Season in the American Southwest not only adds visual drama to the already stunning landscape, it is also an important source of moisture for the deserts and mountain islands. As moisture is pulled northwest from the Gulf of Mexico and the occasional hurricane in the Pacific Ocean, it feeds the warm updrafts of the sun heated landscape creating dramatic thunderstorms, Often these storms are short-lived and may only last minutes, but with enough convective energy, they can last for hours.

This collection of fine art photography showcases Chris Eaton’s efforts to document the drama of Monsoon thunderstorms in the American Southwest.
