According to KOLD-TV, Tucson resident Greg McCown, a real-estate agent and photographer, was storm chasing Saturday near Marana when he snapped the image. “When I pulled it off the LCD screen in the desert, I was doing a happy dance,” McCown told KOLD.
After he posted the photo to Facebook, it quickly went viral, with more than 49,000 shares by early Wednesday.
McCown said he was blown away by the response. His storm-chaser friends even called the photo “the shot of the year.”
“This has been like a dream the last few days,” said McCown, who also hopes to capture a photo of lightning at the Grand Canyon.
