Shot with the trusty ol' Canon 10D in March of 2005. We left PHX at zero-dark-thirty, drove down to Tucson to get to the Saguaro Nat'l park. Cloud cover almost skunked us for sunrise, but the clouds parted for just a few minutes, just as the sun was at the optimum point below the horizon, and voila!

Interesting silhouette but the foreground less so. Terrific colours

Somebody should call the Sierra Club, alert them to all the wonderful photos in this challenge. It's truly amazing. What a beautiful planet we have to live on. Thanks for posting this shot

I can almost hear the sounds and smell the smells of the early morning. I would have boosted the shadows just a bit if the noise level allowed.
