Sunrise at Death Valley National Park

The Great Basin ranges of Nevada seen on the east side from Dante's View just when the sun is rising at the Death Valley National Park. As the sun came up, the mountains near us stayed dark while the farthest ones started brightening up, providing a breathtaking gradation of colors across the mountain ranges.
