Taken approximately one minute after the sun peaked over the distant eastern horizon. The dunes and monoliths take on a brilliant red for the first few moments of sunrise. You have to act quickly as the light will quickly change and the red glow will become quickly change towards orange/yellow. A Navajo guide is required to reach this location within the park.
