On the coldest morning in almost 30 year,
the steam rises off the lake
shrouding the unfinished pier

Red sky at night shepherds' delight
red sky in morning shepherds' warning

There's a cold day ahead!

Thank you all for looking in and for your comments.

It was -34C windchill when I had to take photos of the steam off the lake and was surprised and pleased with the resulting 'impressionist' look of the sunrise.

Ah, Tammie Lee, thank you!

Marc said...

Great picture. You can feel the cold just looking at it.

VioletSky said...

Marc, believe you me, it was COLD! This was actually one of the last I took, and I was ready to give up and go home to the warmth.

Phenomenal image!

How come I didn't know about this blog??

VioletSky said...

You must have blinked, Ruth.
But glad you're here, thanks.

Ruth said...

I think I hadn't been to your profile page, that's all.
