Storm Light On The Dunes

Great Sand Dunes National Park near Alamosa, Colorado.

 

A passing storm created some interesting light on the dunes as well as the surrounding grasslands that were ablaze with yellow Wild Prairie Sunflowers as well as golden Rubber Rabbitbrush. The dunes here are the tallest in North America and rise 750' (230 m) off the floor of the surrounding San Luis Valley.
