You may be wondering where the heck the lake is, but I'm kind of standing in it. At least, that's where it should be. Sometimes there is water and sometimes not. I think the snow melt earlier in the year floods this place, forms the lake, and then once summer hits...you get fields of gold just like this.

We were driving to Williams for my real job and noticed more and more flowers on the way up...and when we passed this wide open area...I knew we'd come back to it on the way home.

What made it even more awesome of course was the thunderstorms going nuts up there. You know me...something as beautiful as a field of flowers only gets better if you throw in some wicked monsoon clouds!

While this spot may look beautiful...I was getting attacked by mosquitoes and who knows WHAT else. But most of the time when you see a shot you just have to have...the environment doesn't matter. You'd lay in field of cactus to get that PERFECT shot.

Technical crap: 6-brackets using my Tamron 17.35mm 2.8, Photomatix 4 Beta, CS5 and some masking.
