Dramatic Sunrise

I photographed this dramatic sunrise back in the winter of 2007. I was on my way down to southern Minnesota to photograph wintering eagles along the Mississippi when the shy erupted in pink and purple. It looked like a scene from a science fiction movie and I was waiting for a UFO to break through the clouds so I stopped and took this pic along the side of the road. Alas their were no aliens but I did get a marvelous pic.
