Praying Monk at Sunrise

Last November I posted a photo of a Phoenix natural landmark called the Praying Monk. This time I photographed it from the other side and at sunrise with the morning sun making the rock glow with a reddish hue.
The rock gets its name from the shape of that outcropping that resembles a monk on his knees with head bowed. It is not as distinct from this side. Click on the link above to see it from the west side.

The praying monk is a beautiful landmark, and you have captured it beautifully. It was worth it for you to go out at sunrise.
