The bright sun reflecting off the dusty field gives this photo an interesting mood. I wasn't even thinking along these lines, but then someone mentioned that it looked like an explosion...so true!

This post seemed so appropriate for the day you planned to leave for Hawaii because of all the sky! I could almost see your plane..... :-). Hope you are having a good vacation with your family!
