442 Thunder Creek Trail.jpg

Just 2 hours before I made this image I was hiking in a dry creek bed.  The very creek bed that is now full of water in this photo.  Flash floods are very much real in the deserts of the southwest and photographers and hikers alike must use extreme caution.  As the skies got darker and rain seemed inevitable I prepared myself and my gear for wet conditions.  What I didn't expect was how fast the dry creek beds would fill with water.  An added bonus were the waterfalls that magically appeared and quickly vanished as the rain subsided.
