A colorful, sunrise reflection over Spirit Lake in northwest Iowa.
It was frigid in northwest Iowa over Christmas, but I thought the lake looked great. I just needed the right sunrise.
While packing up the car with the family on our final morning, I noticed a gorgeous sunrise appearing over the lake. I slipped behind the house to take some pictures. After a few minutes, I went back inside to continue helping pack the car. My father-in-law looked confused, pointed me back to the sunrise, and said, "Keep shooting! It's getting better!"
