The Distant Mountains

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.
