The sky's on fire

Well, no, it isn't. It just looked that way on Saturday morning as the sun rose. I had to move fast, and the few photos I took don't communicate any of the drama I felt as the light intensified. I should have taken a video. After a few minutes, the vibrant colors dulled and faded into a more familiar gray.

Looking southeast toward the sunrise on Saturday.

Later in the morning, we got some snow. Very fine flakes fell for about a minute, then it was over. We had some rain overnight.

  2. Breathtaking. You really do have to be quick to capture the colors. Sometimes by the time I grab my camera they're gone.

  3. Beautiful. I don’t do sunrises unless I’m going to the airport and that is a distant memory.

  6. One of my favorite short stories has the line: "Suddenly his face was lit with joy like the radiance of a brilliant sunrise. ?
