Sunrise at Dead Horse Point State Park - Utah
This shot captured last May on my first trip to the Utah arches area.  Our first morning there we went to Dead Horse State Park for sunrise.  We got there an hour or so before sunrise, giving us time to look around a bit before the sun came up.  The sky did not cooperate as much as we would have like, being pretty much a solid gray.  However, the sun came through and gave us a gorgeous glow on the red rocks below.  

For a while, it was quite an exhilarating morning, having the area to ourselves.  The quiet beauty eventually broken by the arrival of a tour bus full of tourist. 

Five bracketed frames processed in Lightroom 5 and Google/Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.  A little selective sharpening in Photoshop afterwards.
