I generally get up well before sunrise. While camping in Canyonlands National Park, I wandered off into the desert until I had a good view of the horizon. As the sun came up, I was fascinated with the colors and the way the light changed from minute to minute. It is hard to get a feeling for the sun in this situation because it tends to blow out the camera's sensors. But the resulting colors for the rest of the image compensate for the part of the image that is overexposed by the sun. I could have cropped the image to remove the overexposed portion, but I thought that there needed to be a feeling for the impact the sun itself has on the image.
