On this 10 degree morning, I managed to find my camera, grab a coat, start the car (but not let it get fully warmed up), assure Dad I had not gone bezerk overnight, leave the house half dressed in nightwear and half in not-so-warm street clothes, scrape the frost from the windows, and drive a couple miles to get to a sunrise vantage point early enough for this….

Ok then…wait a few minutes, move a bit, adjust a camera setting or two, and find a different look for the same sunrise. Ya know, despite bearing the temperature extremes and livelihood challenges, watching a Kansas sunrise (or sunset) can easily make one long to live for these moments every day. And BTW, believe you me this morning’s sunrise was as cold as it really looks…but certainly warming to the body and soul and beautiful to the sight nonetheless.
