I got to the lake and worked my way along the shore, finding a spot I liked before any light reached the clouds.
I couldn't stop smiling as I composed my images and watched the beautiful colors and clouds changing as the sun came up.
Once the colors faded I hung around long enough to create some images of fog rising off the lake with beautiful clouds and sky above.
I ended with this tamarack tree (Larix laricina) silhouetted on the lake shore. Another great morning in the outdoors.
