We are fortunate to witness breathtaking sunrises and sunsets all year round in Pure Michigan. Last winter, we asked our Facebook fans to submit photos of winter sunrises and sunsets they had captured around the state. We were so blown away by their stunning submissions, that we asked to see the unique and captivating photos they’ve captured this season. Check out the gallery below from our Pure Michigan Flickr page.
