Today's image is titled Let There Be Light! and was photographed by Michael Ejercito.
Ejercito describes the photo as "a sunrise taken recently over Lake Waubesa in Madison, Wisconsin. I thought this would be especially appropriate today because it is the Winter Solstice." This solstice, following which the days will begin growing longer again, officially occurs at 00:22 UTC on Dec. 22, or at 6:22 p.m. this evening in Madison.
