Thimble Peak Sunrise
25 July 2014 Sam Rua

Thimble Peak Sunrise

Tucson, AZ

This particular morning was very humid with a lot of moisture and haze in the atmosphere -- unusual
for this area blessed with relatively clear skies. I happened to get lucky with the alignment of the Sun
rising perfectly centered over Thimble Peak in the Catalina Mountains on the northeast side of Tucson.

Some of my favorite images of Thimble Peak taken over the years can be found below:

Brilliant work. The exposure spot on, and the sun a nice halo for The Thimble. V
