Perseid Hydro-Meteor Shower

   I was in Tucson Arizona this past week and was hoping, while there, to be able to take advantage of the darker skies for some night photography including the Perseid Meteor Shower. However this time of year is the monsoon season for Arizona so the nights for the meteor shower were a mixture of clouds, fog, and drizzle. A hydro-meteor shower! So my photography attempts were limited to pictures of a rain and lightning storm over the Catalina Mountains from my brother’s house.
   The camera was set to take an exposure every second and out of more than 500 pictures I was able to get a few pictures of lightning.
