Storms and Superstitions

"This spectacular storm barreled through the Superstition Mountains in Arizona a few days ago," says Your Shot photographer Andrei Stoica."It was pretty unusual for this time of year, but it had everything: it caused a small sandstorm, hail, anticrepuscular rays, rainbows and, of course, heavy rain. It was all over in one hour, just before sunset!" This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
