Caught in the Storm

While hiking on Humphreys Trail a couple days ago, my wife and I were caught in a mini hail storm. It only lasted a few minutes but it was long enough to cover the ground with a thin layer of tiny iceballs. The flash fired on this shot and, on the left, caught a hailstone in mid-fall.

What an interesting picture. That flash of light on the ice ball looks like somehting from another world. Close encounter?

If I didn't know that was hail, I would have thought it was the Twilight Zone! Great shot!
