sunrise over republic airport



this was the sunrise (during rush hour) this last tuesday morning and it has been sunny ever since. yesterday we had a high of 66 degrees. after all the bad weather we've recently experienced, it was pretty amazing. today it's supposed to be even warmer. how is the weather by you?

What a golden world, Lily!! I think I may have told you, but we've had the mildest winter on record and we've been having some lovely days this week with a few more on the horizon and we hope to reach the 60s over the weekend! Hooray! Everything is blooming or budding out and it's marvelous! Hope you have a great weekend!

What great looking picture. The red spots around the sun look really neat and I like the color of the photo.

This looks like the sky when I drive to work....on a sunny day, which it is today, thank goodness.

I must set my camera on my dashboard....

Gorgeous sunrise. That would be a great way to start the day, even in the middle of rush hour.

Beautiful burst of light and love the touch of rosy pink in some light spots! This creates a little bit of the mystical!

Beautiful! Love the sun splashing all over this shot! Warmer weather is in Ohio also...in the 60's.

Beautiful, LIly! My brother and sister-in-law had the first ever wedding reception at Republic. It was a fabulous venue and they had an unexpected, very special wedding photo there—but at sunset, not sunrise.

The four red spots are a hugely enjoyable bonus in this sunlight that hurts my eyes!:-)
