The Gathering Storm

Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

I found this pocket of sunflowers while exploring the front portion of the Great Sand Dunes during the summer monsoon season. I shot this scene for probably an hour as the sky and light on the dunes were constantly changing. Got a vicious sunburn too! The rain finally came about 4 hours later. The peak dune in the background is the tallest in the United States. Photo © copyright by Michael Greene.
