Monument Valley Sunrise

Posted by
CW McGowen (Morgan Hill, United States) on 15 January 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

As the sun peeks over the horizon between the East and West Mittens the leading edge breaks into a brilliant star pattern. A line of clouds rests just above the horizon providing color and warmth to the sunrise.
