Desert sunrise in Arizona

This is the sunrise that I was referencing in yesterday’s post. The image shown there was shot while facing west not long after I captured this image looking to the east. My goal of coming home with a desert sunrise in Arizona was finally fulfilled on my last morning┬áthere. This was achieved with the help of several local residents that suggested this spot.

The mountains shown here represent Mazatzal┬áPeak, while yesterday’s image looked towards the Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve.
