#SkyCandy of the Week: Monsoon Mothership

Each week on the blog, I’ll pick one viewer photo for the #SkyCandy of the Week award. The prize? Pride! Mother Nature tends to put on a show when this Arizona storm chaser’s on the road. His travels to Pinal County paid off in an ominous way.


Photographer: Mike Olbinski

Location: San Manuel, AZ

Date taken: September 12th, 2016

Camera used: Canon 5D Mark III

That’s what he said: “By the time I got to the San Manuel Airport, the shelf cloud had turned into easily one of the top 3 I’ve seen here in Arizona. It was stunning, moving fast and behind it, golf ball sized hail was falling in places.”
