Needless to say, I just had to rush out and photograph it before the clouds burnt off, even without having my breakfast. That's extreme for me, as, being a late riser, I refuse to even get up early to shoot sunrises. This tree is one of several photogenic oaks just a few miles out of town from my house.
Surprisingly, this sky reappeared later in the day, and made for a great sunset. I also managed to get out for that, and there will be some of them shared in coming days.
