Sun on a rainy day

Here in Utah, we've had an exceptionally wet June. Today, the official first day of summer, it was 49 degrees this morning and raining.
So I went looking for some sunshine to provide an offset to the gloom out side and I found this shot. I took it on a trip up to the Northwestern part of the Great Salt Lake. The country there is vast and open and beautiful, with all kinds of wildlife if you are patient. The only 'wildlife' in this picture is my buddy Murphy, but you can get a sense of the vastness. The interplay of light and shadows is fascinating and I can sit and watch it for hours.
I worked this photo in Lightroom, trying different settings until I arrived where my eye remembered how it looked.
