The Other Side of Sunrise

The Other Side of Sunrise
by Larry Gunn

Shiprock is a volcanic plug rising out of the desert on Native American Navajo Tribal Lands. A rock dike also formed from the volcano leads to Shiprock. The early morning light illuminates the formation in the cold morning producing an interesting shadow: it is the coldest part of the night right before sunrise.
