Colorado Images - Summer Wildflowers in Grand County 6

Add to Lightbox Download
After hiking up a 1000 vertical feet above Highway 40 and after a very rainy night, I was rewarded with wet feet and a great Colorado landscape stretching out before me. This wildflower image was taken in mid July along a stream fed by the melting snows at about 12,000 feet. I didn't know if the clouds would break up, but for a brief moment, the sun peeked through the layers and offered a nice starburst.
