Sunrise over a Snow-Covered Desert

Paranal wakes up under a thin layer of snow, on an unusual southern-hemisphere winter morning in 2011. The picture is taken looking toward the east. To the right of the rising sun, the rounded shape of Cerro Armazones is visible. Cerro Armazones is the selected site for the E-ELT.
