Crested Butte, Colorado is know as the state's "wildflower capital". Every July, the area seemingly explodes in
colorful displays that carpet the hillsides. I had ventured out to this area and spent the night close by, so I could
shoot sunrise. I woke to find that instead of sunrise light, I was greeted by light rain showers off and on. I walked
out into the flowers anyways, as I thought the rain might "perk up" the flowers, and also the moisture would
increase color saturation. I found a nice spot and had tried some tighter shots, but then saw the next shower
approaching, darkening the sky. It made for a dramatic, moody scene, and I snapped this shot and soon was
heading back to my Jeep.
