A lone turkey vulture (or perhaps a hawk) glides before the torrential downpour of a monsoon storm that is sweeping across the San Pedro River Vally in Southeastern Arizona. Dark brooding clouds release a deluge of bright white rain, back-lit by the rays of the late afternoon sun. The outlines of the Huachuca Mountains provide a backdrop for this dramatic image, and silhouettes of acacias and creosote dominate the foreground.
