Looking across the Otero Mesa toward the Guadalupe Mountains on a winter sunrise.
The Guadalupes rise east of the Otero Mesa in an impressive escarpment that looks like a giant wall. The are lit at sunset and make a great silhouette at sunrise. Here I was able to capture them under a glorious winter sunrise.
The escarpment looms in the east and ends suddenly at the dramatic El Capitan as it flies in the sky over the desert below.
