This week, I'm keeping it in the family. The Snapshot of the Week is generously provided by JoAnn Ricchiuti, my mother with a keen eye for beautiful places. Always with a camera in hand, I learned everything I know about photography from her. Sunrise, my favorite time of the day!

 I took this photo last week, on a late afternoon walk on the Palm Beach lake trail into West Palm Beach, Florida. This Giant Kapok Tree was planted in 1887 and is a landmark to walkers-by and boaters alike, and I was taken by its delicate silhouette against the urban
