Distant Colorado hailstorm among a field full of wild sunflowers

Colorful Colorado certainly lived up to that moniker on this mid-August afternoon south of the Pawnee National Grassland as a small, non-severe hailstorm rolled northeast through the plains. To capture this image, I had to tromp through these waist-high sunflowers as they seemingly went on forever in this prairie landscape. What a view! Details of this image: Nikon D3 body, 14mm focal length, 1/5000s @ f/5.6, ISO 200. Taken August 16, 2009 at 5:38pm MDT near Masters, Colorado
