Sunlit Sunday ~ Sunrise

It isn't often that the sun is out during the winter and when it does come out, all I want to do is go out and enjoy the warmth of the sun rays.
Growing up in Saskatchewan, I took the sun for granted.  The weather in the winter might have been down-right cold but it didn't seem so bad as the sun was shining brightly.
Here in Upper Michigan we don't get the privilege of seeing the sun and most days are  dreary and bleak.
Until that day that sun decides to show his face and brings smiles to everyone.

  6. I lived in Saskatchewan for four years and remember all the sunshine! I could use some of it in this province.

    Beautiful sunrise, Marlys. It always amazes me how the colours can change so quickly. Thanks for participating in Sunlit Sunday!


  7. Such a beautiful sun rise - we are all fogged in today which is very unusual for our part of the country.

  8. What a beautiful capture! Sunrises are always so captivating. I love the bare branches of the tree too.

  9. Beautiful sunrise! Sunshine does seen to make the cold winter days more bearable.

  11. Marlys, this is a beautiful photo. I love the yellow sunrise and the snow covered road curving around the trees. Blessings, Pamela
