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.

Wispy pink clouds dotting the horizon early this morning.

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?!

A little cloudy & hazy this morning. I couldn’t decide if the sun was ever going to make it through… and it finally did.

So I must admit that this morning was pretty dreary. I had really low expectations as I started out with gray, foggy, overcast skies. In my head, I figured I would “just bike” and never see a sunrise photo moment today. And then THIS happened!!!
