Fredric Walder took this photo at Canyonlands National Park in Utah, on the evening of April 30, 2019. He said:
A storm was developing to the west over the mesas and canyons, showers were visible, and a particularly interesting eye-shaped clearing showed the sunlight and illuminated a feature at this overlook spot in the national park. It hailed later, as the storm fully developed and moved east.
Thanks for sharing your image with us, Fredric!
