ChasingChasingAs I gaze upon this photograph entitled "Chasing," I am reminded of the intricate interplay between light and water, two elements that have shaped the landscape of Arizona for millennia. The rocky shoreline dominating the foreground is a testament to the power of water to shape and mold the earth and a reminder of the ancient forces that have sculpted this land. To the left of the frame, a dried-out tree stands proudly, a sentinel witness to the changing seasons and cycles of life and death.
The backdrop of this image is no less awe-inspiring. Against a cloudy sky of dark blues and grays, a magnificent rainbow crashes into the top of the frame, arching majestically across the landscape. Its vibrant hues are a testament to the beauty that can emerge from the chaos of a monsoon season. Yet, even as we admire its beauty, we are reminded of the fleeting nature of all things. The rainbow is already being consumed by the fast-moving monsoon off to the left, a reminder of the transience of life and the impermanence of all things.
This image captures the delicate dance between life and death, beauty and decay, and light and darkness that characterizes the natural world. It reminds us that even in the face of hardship and struggle, there is always a glimmer of hope, a spark of magic waiting to be discovered. And so, as I look upon this photograph, I am overwhelmed with a sense of wonder and gratitude for the beauty surrounding us, even in the most unexpected places. It is a reminder to cherish life's fleeting moments of beauty and appreciate the intricate web of connections that bind us to the world around us.

     The siren weather alert was blasting through her smartphone, warning of oncoming lighting. She stood frozen at the breathtaking sight of the most colorful rainbow she had ever seen. She quickly set up her tripod to set up a shot of this fantastic monsoon summer day at Lake Roosevelt.

As the siren weather alert blared from her smartphone, a mix of excitement and apprehension coursed through Samantha. She knew that oncoming lightning could be dangerous, but the sight before her was too incredible to pass up. The vibrant rainbow arching over Lake Roosevelt was the most intense and colorful she had ever seen, a testament to the power of the summer monsoon.
Her heart raced as she quickly set up her tripod, trying to steady her hands as she adjusted her camera settings. Time was of the essence, and Samantha knew she had to work fast if she wanted to capture the mesmerizing scene before her. The dark, stormy sky served as a dramatic backdrop for the brilliant colors of the rainbow, and the lake's choppy waters seemed to mirror the electric energy in the air.
Samantha's pulse quickened with each rumble of thunder in the distance. The threat of lightning loomed large, but she couldn't tear herself away from the beauty unfolding before her. The combination of the storm and the vibrant rainbow was a photographer's dream, a rare and captivating moment she couldn't resist capturing.
As she snapped photo after photo, Samantha was acutely aware of the danger she was in. But the stunning images she was capturing fueled her determination to make the most of this extraordinary opportunity. Her passion for photography and desire to share the world's beauty with others drove her to push through her fear and continue shooting.
Finally, as the last remnants of the rainbow faded, Samantha quickly packed her gear and retreated to a safer location. Her heart was still pounding. She couldn't help but feel a sense of exhilaration as she reviewed the breathtaking images she had captured. Despite the risks she had taken, she knew her photographs of that incredible summer monsoon day at Lake Roosevelt would be among her most treasured works, a lasting reminder of nature's raw beauty and power.
