Sunrise at a Monument in Siouxland, Sioux City

While out early recently I drove by the Floyd Monument located in Sioux City, dedicated to Sgt. Charles Floyd, the only member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition to explore the Louisiana Purchase done by President Thomas Jefferson. The light was peeking through clouds and created a nice scene at the monument in Siouxland. I’m a sucker when it comes to light and shade. My only regret was not leaving earlier when the rising sun was creating “golden” outlines around some of the clouds. And my only excuse is that the coffee was still percolating.
