Desert Sunrise

Uploaded: December 04, 2010


There's a simple rugged beauty about a sunrise in the desrt... no huge mountains, no dramatic skies, no lush green flora. But you do get a wonderfully quiet, expansive colorful peace with almost no sound. Taken while driving on a trip in NE Arizona.

24-70mm L Lens at 24mm, f/14, no filters. Multi-image blend. The long exposure and small aperture creates the sun rays.
