Photo of the Day: Another day

Another day, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
One of my favorite sunrise photos from our trip to Death Valley is this image of a... what, tree? shrub? bush? silhouetted against the morning sky at Mesquite Dunes. I love the smooth curves of the sand in the foreground, the similar sweep of clouds in the background, with just a hint of color from the not-yet-risen sun, and that solitary plant clinging to life at the top of the dunes. I took several versions of the photo, shooting fast while the light held; this one's my personal favorite. I shot RAW, so I could adjust the exposure; truth be told, I'm still fiddling with it, experimenting with different settings. What do you think?
