239. last sunrise of 2011 before the first snow dusting in chicago


i have been a witness to many unique sunrises over lake michigan these past few weeks

yet this one was especially remarkable

just before the sun became visible over the liquid horizon

the sunrays lit up the massive cloud formations above

delicate wisps started to become visible as the light increased

clinging to the solemn giants

like spanish moss hanging on ancient live oaks

a quiet and beautiful announcement

of the coming first snow dusting that was to fall just a few short hours later
