Photographer's Note

You all have seen Emir Kusturica's "Arizona Dream" (with Johnny Depp), haven't you? No!? Well, what are you waiting for?...

Here is my personal Arizona dream, no Eskimo delivering a halibut in it though. In plain English: THIS is what one gets for wishing some sunny, relaxing time in one of the sunniest states in the great wide open Western USA...

A local Navajo chief told us such weather was very unusual for the month of May. Rains are supposed to come to Page area in July and August if ever, but not in May... The locals THANK global climate change for this anomaly. Rain is a blessing in the desert.

By the way, the lightning is strikig right where the famous Antelope Canyon* is whereas the dark waters in the foreground belong to lake Powell. Technically, this is the beginning of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River.


--
* During storms like this, flash floods do happen in Antelope Canyon. Water in the canyon can rise to 12 feet and higher within seconds. So, if you happen to be there and you see your guide rushing towards the exit while screaming "run!", make sure you RUN!...
