At coffee this morning the sun was rising through some local fog. I noticed this streaming effect and hustled out into the parking lot to get a shot or two. I've had similar images before, but the seasonal differences makes each one attractive to me. Not a great shot, but a wonderful attitude builder toward making it a good day!
