Monsoon Landscapes with a Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS Lens

I was planning to shoot a scene for a film project I was working on in Arivaca, Arizona, but when the vintage 1960 Ford F100 panel truck that was going to be used for the scene sprung a fuel leak, the shoot had to be cancelled.

I salvaged the late afternoon/sunset by heading to the outskirts of Arivaca, south toward the Mexican border.   Out of nowhere summer monsoon storms began developing cells.  

It was the opportunity I was looking for to take my first photographs with the  Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS Lens 

Note: As-photographed 23.6M JPEGs.  No photos in this post were adjusted/edited in post.
