August Break – August 1st

I’m participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break project:

The plan is: you simply share  one photo  (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every  day .Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact,  Polaroid,  Holga, iPhone (my  choice), Instax, film or digital – with or  without words –  anything goes! – for the whole of August.  No pressure  – just looking at August through  your camera lens as a  way to be more  present this summer. And to have a  little break from  the pressures and  expectations of regular (wordy) blogging.

There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.

My photo for August 1st

Rain on the Road

This was taken on Interstate 17, outside of Phoenix.  We had spent the day up in the north country, and were treated to a tremendous thunderstorm on the way back down into the Valley of the Sun.  There was almost constant lightening, and if you look closely, you can see the tail end of a bolt that had just flashed as I snapped the picture.  Driving in the rain and thunderstorms are things that we don’t experience too often, so this was an adventure.
