These pages contain images of various atmospheric and weather effects I have seen while living in southern Arizona. The images
are from the Tucson area, the Santa Rita mountains, and an occasional plane trip. I was fortunate to work on Mt. Hopkins for many
years, and the mountaintop weather there is phenomenal due to the isolated high altitude peak. These photos were taken
with a Nikon 990, Nikon 4500, Nikon P5000, Fuji F10, Konica Minolta 7D, Konica Minolta A2, and Sony A700.
