Sunrise sunset

I’m always trying to capture the way the sun looks in the desert. Sunrise is hard. To the naked eye, when the sun first comes up, it is huge and startling, and almost moonlike in its starkness, the only thing worth noticing during the morning rush.  The effect does not last long, and I have never been able to capture in a photo what the eye sees selectively.

Sunset is easier to capture, both in terms of what the eye gravitates to…

…and the appearance of the whole orb of the sky.
