A lightening bolt in the distance on Mount Lemon

This photograph was taken at about 7,000 feet on Mount Lemon, near Tucson, Arizona. I was visiting Tucson with my Aunt, Martha, who gave me my first camera. We discovered Mount Lemon and visited during the day. I found out there would be a meteor shower that night so we later returned. To my surprise I saw much more than shooting stars. This is easily the most magical night of my life. Seeing shooting stars and lightening while surrounded by nature was amazing.
