My friends and family agree that I am not an early riser and just about the only thing that will get me up at 5am is a magnificent sunrise. This is a photograph of one of the most beautiful sunrises I ever witnessed. I was in El Paso, Texas and I rose at 5am to head to Carlsbad Caverns. As I was driving along Transmountain Drive this spectacular sky greeted me. I truly believe the American Southwest has some of the most glorious sunrises on the planet.
This one is for my mom who loves photographing clouds and sky.
