I had two primary objectives for my first time in Lansing. The first was to photograph the capitol building, hopefully with a nice sunset, but definitely at night with its lights on. The sunset turned out to be pretty lame and not positioned well for what I wanted. However, I did get just a bit of color in the clouds behind the capitol.

After driving around the city for a while, I returned to the capitol after dark and snapped a few more shots.

The next morning, I went out searching for a place to watch the sunrise. Finding myself on the campus of Michigan State University, I had no luck finding a suitable foreground, but the sunrise wouldn't wait. Finally, I pulled over next to a large open field and took what Mother Nature gave me. It was a pretty sunrise, even without a good foreground.
