“Coming home to a place he’d never been before………”

Looking across to Hayden’s Peak reminded me of the John Denver song Rocky Mountain High.  It’s second line goes “Coming home to a place he’d never been before.”  And so it was for me.  Although I had never been in the Colorado Rockies there was a familiarity and peace about being back in a mountain landscape.  However the peace was not to last long.  Weather is always changeable in mountain regions and it was thrilling to watch as a summer thunder storm generated before unleashing a severe down pouring of hail.  The following photographs are my attempt at capturing the mood of the sky as the storm developed.
