Victoria, Australia Sunset

Early morning sunrise, taken on the 29th December, 2016. I was driving down to a cycling event near Lara, Victoria, Australia, when I saw this stunning sunrise! I stopped and took some photos with my Nexus 5X phone.  This is one where I zoomed in a bit more to try and capture the deep red colors.
