A little cloudy to start, but it definitely cleared up to become a beautiful day for playing downtown yesterday!

 And then sometimes THIS happens!!!

A sunrise party on my camera lens! Not a huge fan of the solar flares on my camera lens…
and thus my affinity for the well-placed silhouette.
However yesterday’s “polka dot party” was pretty darn impressive!!!

With a sky full of clouds splashed with colors… a big sky-show requires BIG PHOTOS!!!

When the sky is splashed with BIG colors…
sometimes a BIG photo is required to capture it… or two?!!!

Beautiful blue skies. Beautiful vista over the lake.
Panoramic photo needed to capture the beauty!

Big sunrise sky-shows require big sunrise photos!!!

Spent the weekend down in Bartonville (near Peoria) visiting some good friends & playing in their amazing garden with my Cousin Kim! It’s just enough warmer down there that they are easily a few weeks ahead of us. So many Spring flowers already blooming in their amazing garden! Full of colors, textures and a bunch of wonderful rust pieces!!!

And if that first panorama shot was “pretty”…
a couple minutes later it was STUNNING!!! Big sunrises need big photos!!!

Enjoy... I know I sure did.

Big sky shows sometimes require a panoramic shot…
showing the clouds moving in and blowing across the horizon!
