An amazing show of morning color for a few brief moments today.
Very few. Very brief… before we were plunged right back into cloudy grayness!

Spring is in the air. I can feel it. At least for today…
as it’s supposed to get down into the 20′s overnight tonight!

A cloudy start to a beautiful morning bike ride.
A little chilly, with a hint of Spring in the air.

A valiant effort this morning. With one large dark cloud moving in…
we squeaked in a smidgeon of a sunrise before gray took over for the day.
Very moody. Very dark. But VERY cool!!!

And while the battle for sky space was going on up North…
the Chicago Skyline was enjoying some clear skies…. with more clouds slowly moving in!

Headwinds for the first half of a chilly morning ride.
The ride home was a LOT more fun… as the waves were splashing all around.

My morning started out early at an empty Belmont Harbor.

It was another beautiful morning. Good clouds. Good color. Great ride.
Not too shabby as we get close to finishing out February, huh?!

And back again at Belmont Harbor… a bit brighter than it was a few miles earlier!

A beautiful start to the day… with a forecast of our amazing warm-spell coming to an end soon. Clear skies this morning with clouds filling in throughout the day… and maybe rain? Glad I got out to play before it all “breaks bad” later this evening!

 

And a few miles later as I pedaled home past the golf course…

More clouds this morning, but still surprisingly warm.
Good color, but a few too many clouds for the sun to quite peek through.

And then the amazing color sky show ended… and we were plunged back into clouds.
Making the northern tip of Belmont Harbor look especially cold… but it wasn’t.

And a slightly still fogged-in Chicago skyline…

Another beautiful morning with some great clouds… and even better color!
Looks like it’s going to become a beautiful day as predicted. I’m thinking studio this morning,
and then back on the bike this afternoon for a few more miles!!!

With a surprising warm spell moving through Chicago, it was great to kick-off the “weekend” with a beautiful sunrise morning. With huge hopes of more great rides as the weekend is predicted to be absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Time to get in some good miles!!!
