Caption   A bolt of lightning strikes between Panther and Safford Peaks in Saguaro National Park, near Marana, Arizona, on the afternoon of August 12, 2014. Twin Peaks Quarry can be seen in the foreground. Each summer, the storms of the North American monsoon bring life-giving rain to this area. This photo was taken with a lightning detection device, which triggers a camera's shutter when a sudden increase in light level is seen.
