Abstract Sunrise

A sunrise in the Arizona/Utah desert provided an unexpected abstract shot. First, I was expecting pink and gold in the sky, but the clouds were so white and hazy covering the whole sky, it gave for a white glow. Second, and wait what is that-- is that water? Yes that is water in the middle of the desert in July! Pretty rare to see. Combined with the surreal sandstone lines, this became one of my favorite shots.
