Just before the sun peaked over the horizon early this morning.
What you see in the distance are the Vermillion Cliffs just getting the first direct sun of the day. Between the near ridge and the cliffs is the Colorado River, making it’s way from Lake Powell down through the Grand Canyon.
The color is spectacular!
Great sky color, probably looked better in person
It was really cool in person. The shot just doesn’t get across the color and vista out there!
