In the land of the Navajo, there is a place which welcomes the sun. After the quiet stillness of the night, the land beckons the sun as it peeks over the horizon, gazing upon all that lay before it.

All comments are welcome,

Jim

Very poetic description Jim. The photo is very nice, with good attention to bringing out the right amount of shadow details.

Great scene and light, I like the way the shadow areas came out with such strong DR.

Wow - that's a very dynamic image Jim, and soothing at the same time. I like the poetry in your description.

Very nice warm sandstone colors. I like the little table to the left.
It almost looks like an evening shot to me although I know it isn't.

Really nice. Jim. I really like how the sun rays "peek over" the distant escarpment.

Lovely, Jim - I like the contrast between warm and cool here; also the sun seems to balance nicely with the uppermost rocky outcrop.

Very interesting image. From the way you composed it, I was expecting shade in the foreground but instead got a warm glow. Wonderful light Jim!

I like how the light is reflected back on to the rock lower mid center location.

Very poetic, love how the sun warms the foreground leaving the back for later. You captured the magic of this one very well.

Thanks Gordon, it was definitely a very poetic moment... Even though there were no clouds to speak of, it was a glorious sunrise.
