Box Springs Mountain

I took this one on January 23, 2012, at 6:30 am. The view is east from Mount Rubidoux over the north end of the City of Riverside toward Box Springs Mountain. Box Springs is the ridge in the left distance.

The cloud cover was quite thick that morning, but you can see a bit of red light from the sunrise breaking through the clouds over Moreno Valley in the right distance. I like nightscapes of the city, particularly because of the orange-tinted streetlamps, which bounce a great deal of light around, faintly tinting the clouds .
