A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Lake Michigan February 12 2014

About a month ago I posted a picture of Lake Michigan at sunrise.  This morning I took a picture just before sunrise.   The scene is like an ever-changing watercolor painting.  The picture I posted last month had pinks and purples adorning the sky.  Today, it is much more oranges and light blue-grey hues.  Please click on the picture for the full effect!

What a wonder, this natural painting!  Have a terrific day!!

      Oh thank you so much, Ed! I think I’m rather embarrassed as my pictures are taken by my phone and certainly not the best quality. I do love capturing the changing scenes and comparing them! Yes, the tones and movement are lovely!! Cher xo

      1. Nothing to be embarrassed about Cher, I know a few Pro’s who shoot alot of stuff with their phones. With the amount of new tech these days, it gets harder to tell the difference. I’ve done it myself, and trust me, there is nothing wrong with the quality 🙂

      1. Cher, I have an interesting request for you this morning. First two questions: Are you a Horse person, one who appreciates their beauty? Have you yet discovered the amazing photography at WhiskyTangoFoxtrot? Because yesterday I left a first comment on her recent masterpiece and it was a bit long – like you and I enjoy sharing – and now no one else is commenting! If you’re interested I encourage you to bring your sunshiny self over to her blog and who knows? You just might feel inspired to comment! xo Gina

    So many thoughts run through my mind when I look at that photo.

    God saying goodnight with beautiful washes of color while we the humans respond with tiny flashes of our own colors.

    God the Rock Star beginning the show, humans waving lighters in the audience.

    Lamp lights — God’s night light to humans.

        Thank you. I love sunrises and sunsets. If I could ever afford to build my own house, I’d have plenty of huge windows facing east and west. Can you imagine sitting in a room where the only light comes from a fireplace and just outside of its glow you sit in a big plump chair watching the sunset? A view that changes every single day, a living painting.

        Excuse my long wind about this, but looking at the sky is right up there with looking at trees and water for me. No two people can occupy the same place at the same time so whenever you look at the sky, you are seeing it in a way no one else can or ever will. It’s as if God has\is creating this indescribable piece of ever changing art for each one us personally, yet all together at the same time. It amazes and awes me.

    Beautiful enough to enlarge and hang on the wall, Cher. You’re a terrific photographer in addition to your other talents! The photo is so much better when I enlarged it – I was able to see the street lights so much better; the stars in the sky aren’t visible, but the street lamps were the stars transplanted from the sky onto the earth!!!
