Driving north on 17 I watched as a dark storm rolled over the desert headed straight for me. By the time the rain and pellet sized hail got to me around Camp Verde visibility on the highway wasn’t more than a few yards. As the rain passed and I drove out of the storm, it’s general westward direction was a little worrying since I was meeting Stephanie and Jeff for their engagement session in Sedona. We were all driving up from the Valley and no one wanted rain. Clouds yes, overcast OK, but not a down pour. I met up with Stephanie and Jeff at Tlaquepaque and we seriously lucked out without a drop of rain the rest of the evening. By the end of our shoot on a vista overlooking the red rock formations of Sedona below, the flat cool light made Stephanie and Jeff look like they were standing in front of a painting.
