Nevada Desert Sunrise, Unionville, 4:35 a.m.

Sunrise in the Nevada DesertGood morning!  I awoke at first light one morning while camping in the Nevada desert last week and immediately grabbed my  camera.  This shot was taken at 4:35 a.m. from a hillside above Unionville, Nevada.  The rich reddish-gold color that permeates the top of the hill in this photo weaves in and out of the other sunrise pictures I shot that morning–but in none of them is it as deep as it is here, confirming that there is little margin for saturated light in the desert in summer.
