The sand lines and clouds spiral and converge towards the middle of the mountain peaks, creating a sense of dynamic visual perception from what is essentially a static desert landscape, akin to the inward spiraling of a rose. Having calculated the sun's anticipated position and angle of illumination the previous day, we set out at 5 AM the next day to ascend the mountain. We skillfully timed it to capture the moment when the sun's rays were caught, igniting the desert rose with warmth and tension.
