Wow that is a fantastic photo. It almost looks like a fire has been through and they are flames in the distance.
Happy SWF.

I wish I could get morning sky shots like this. Where I live I am behind a mountain. By the time the sun peeks over the peak, the colours are muted. I invite you to come see the skies over Powell Lake in British Columbia. -- Margy

I saw exactly what Spo saw: ICE and COLD. I looked Chicago up! You guys are FREEZING! NO WONDER that picture is SO very sparkly. How many "layers" we're you wearing that morning? Hah.

Suzanne- Thanks and welcome to the Tapestry. Not much to burn in the direction of the red glow. That's Lake Michigan out that way.

babooshka- Thanks.

Good Life- Welcome to the Tapestry. Thanks, though it's actually a sunrise rather than a sunset.

Gallicissa- Thanks.

cedrorum- Well, it was fairly accurate in this case. It was followed by several inches of snow and much colder temperatures.

Lem and Gretchen- Thanks.

Margy- Welcome to the Tapestry. You come from a beautiful part of the world. I love British Columbia.

Amy- Thanks and welcome to the Tapestry.

Spo- That's about the size of things out here at the moment.

Dave- Thanks.

Mark- We have had a very early winter here. There have been three snowstorms deep enough to shovel in the last week. We have had lows in the single digits and highs below 20 already. More is predicted. I did not have a lot of layers on when I took that photo. I was on my way in to work and was only outside for a few minutes. I did have my extra-heavy down coat on.
