Sun Beams over Isle Royale

This morning's sunrise was pretty sweet, although at first it didn't look too promising due to the cloud cover.  As we drove to our planned location, however, things were looking better.  The actual sunrise itself was okay, but once the sun got up into the clouds we were treated to an incredible display of sun beams protruding down through the clouds.  The piece of land that you see in this photo is Isle Royale National Park, which is in Michigan but lies only 20 miles offshore from Minnesota, where this photo was taken from.  If you look closely in the lower right corner of the photo you can see Rock of Ages Lighthouse, which lies just a few miles off the eastern tip of Isle Royale.

Great pic, I've never seen isle Royale from the mainland before. usually see it slowly rise up from the lake about 3 hrs into the boat ride from Copper Harbor Michigan...if there isn't fog.
