Stunning images capture the moment lightning strikes over Monument Valley

These stunning images captured the moment lightning struck over Monument Valley.

Jennifer Khordi, 47, was storm-chasing in Arizona when she came across the mesmerizing scenes.

Khordi, from New Jersey, watched as the sky turned a deep purple and pink lightning forks pierced through the epic storm clouds.

The iconic landmark casts a perfect silhouette against the ferocious storm.

Khordi, a semi-professional photographer, said, “The images were taken in Arizona during a trip I took to capture lightning and storm images from their active monsoon season.”

“I was very lucky to get such good images — I love the whole experience.”
