The rising sun and dissipating cloud cover captivated me this morning as I drove to school. Most of the time it's overcast here in Michigan during the winter. (Did you know that Lansing, MI averages only two more sunny days per year than Seattle, WA?!) This time of year it gets to be a treat to see blue sky and sunshine. I always love a winter sky-scape, especially with silhouettes of bare tree branches. I took this picture in the school parking lot.
