Sure, I “probably” should have gone to the studio early to start my kiln firing.
Sure. But c’mon, with a sunrise like this…
how could I miss out by skipping my morning bike ride?! I just couldn’t.

A quiet Sunday morning along the lake. Clear skies with a few wispy clouds that came closer just in time for a beautiful golden finish to the morning’s sunrise!

With the water level of Lake Michigan about seven inches higher than normal, there are a lot of flooded beaches & places where the waves are coming up over the edges. Kinda fun…. but a little disconcerting at the same time!

Another cloudy start to the day. Good sunrise potential that was never quite fulfilled. All those gray clouds never quite finding their time to shine in a blaze of sunrise colors. So close

The Chicago Skyline looked pretty great though…

Another beautiful morning ride with a dramatic cloud front blowing across the city. I love when you can actually see the line of the storm front. Once the clouds moved through, the sun finally had a fighting chance… after it cleared the low-lying clouds out over Michigan way!

Well, after yesterday’s storms, the clouds were still hanging out and the winds were quite strong. I was at camp and in the studio ALL day yesterday… apparently the storm was worse than I thought?!

Big sky show with rippled reflections across the lakefront.

Another warm & tranquil morning. Sunrise reflections on the rippled water. Beautiful clouds playing with the sun changing colors along the way.

After a weekend of rough water & choppy waves, it was a pleasant change to be back to calm waters & reflecting tranquility along the lakefront this morning.

A beautiful morning with a low layer of clouds drifting along the horizon. Just enough for the sun to play with… yet not enough to cover the sky. Looks like it’s going to be another perfect July day!
