Through the camera – flash flood

Last weekend it rained in Tucson. Heavy and sustained rain, enough to run off the hard-baked ground and find it’s way into the various washes, taking them from empty to flowing in a matter of minutes. It was not the monsoon generated flash floods where walls of water come roaring down the wash, but still impressive to watch a dry streambed start with a trickle finding it’s way across the sand and then go to a full flow in the space of a few minutes, and then a few hours later be as dry as it was to start with.
