Description

Justy moments before the sunrise at Deadhorse Point, looking out over the iconic gooseneck of the Colorado River. I've been there for sunset a few times - these clouds were particularly sweet compared to my other visits. I spent a little while in the early dawn twilight comparing possible compositions, and settled on this spot with time to spare before this peak moment just before the sun spilled out across the landscape - i.e. plenty of warm tones and contrasting cool tones, and without the harshness of direct sunlight.
