The sunrise through an opening at the top of Skytop Tower at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY

(FYI: The photo has to be rotated 90 degrees to the right. I was unable to change it once it was uploaded) In the early morning one day in April, I hiked up the Mohonk Mountain trail then climbed to the top of Skytop Tower. I was blinded by the sunrise beaming into the opening of the tower top. The opening is actually a rectangle but it looks like light is coming through the shape of an urn and the color is magnificent.
