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

Sweeping skies & colorful clouds make for a beautiful panoramic shot
of the lakefront and the Chicago Skyline… and my bike!

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!

Crisp & clear with a LOT of wind blowing in from the Lake.
And with that wind comes a lot of waves crashing along the shoreline.
Okay, so I “may” have gotten splashed a couple times… but it was well worth it.

More clouds than sun this morning… more wind too!!! Most would have rolled over & gone back to sleep. But they would have missed the cool waves crashing all around… including up & over the bike trail at the S-curve of Lake Shore Drive. And yes, for the record, I pedaled through and my shoes got soaked. It’s just water, right???

A warm & humid start to the day, with layered clouds brightening the sky…
and a beautiful ride down to the South Side and back.

And a fun, sunrise-watching sculpture on the South Side by Tom Friedman.

Big sky. Big color. Big sky show.
Big panoramic photos!!!

With a ton of clouds this morning, we had a very dramatic sunrise sky show. It was warm & sweaty, but well worth it when the entire spectrum of sunrise colors evolved through the morning.

Sure, it may have been pouring rain this morning…
but yesterday was pretty darn stunning with reflections all around.

Today, not so much.
