Just a random sunrise photo from Shaw Butte in Phoenix

Apropos of nothing, here’s a random photo taken during a sunrise hike at Shaw Butte in Phoenix last year. We’re looking north from near the summit, with the residential communities clustered around Thunderbird Road and Coral Gables Drive appearing closest below.

Usually the low brush appears brown and the rocks appear grey, but with the sunlight at such a low angle, a glowing, golden hue appeared.
