Fishing Opener Sunrise

This morning is the fishing opener in Minnesota.  I decided to head for the lake front and see how sunrise would play out. I was anticipating far more than the 3 boats I saw on the water, but the sunrise was fantastic.  There was a good cloud cover, that later produced snow flurries, with an opening on the horizon to allow some color to pop through. Prior to the sun breaching the horizon, the sky was filling with intense pinks and purples.  When it did rise, it gave a beautiful golden light which did not last long, as the cloud bank quickly covered it.  Below are a few shots of the progression.
