I like to take sunrise photos from the break room. No one is in there early in the morning, so I can turn off the lights. But the western view isn’t as good. The building and trees block most of the sky. No construction cranes visible from this window, either.
This was the view to the west this morning, just before the sun rose. A thin band of clouds intensified the pink of the Belt of Venus.
Happy Tuesday! The rain has finally ended, and the sky is clear and beautiful. So clear, in fact, that the temperature dropped overnight. I had to scrape frost off my car windows this morning.
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!
It was about 5F at 5:30 this morning, when I left for work. There wasn’t much frost on my car windows, but what there was was stuck on with super glue. It took me almost 20 minutes to get everything scraped. And then, even though I’d started the car and had the heater cranked all the way up, there was still frost on the inside of my windshield.
And then the sun came up and everything was forgiven. What a gorgeous sky!
This was yesterday morning, from the colonnade in front of the library. Every morning I take a moment to enjoy the patch of sky framed between the building and the columns.
There were clouds along the western sky this morning, and the tops of them reflected the tail end of the sunrise while the Belt of Venus glowed the cloud cover. The combination produced a pink glow that was much more intense than you’d see from just the Belt of Venus itself.

There were some beautiful things going on in the sky this morning. If you’re local, I hope you got to see them.
Monday morning, after the storms.
