Dawn's Early Light

It was an extremely cold Sunday morning yesterday. I decided to check out the dawn along Lake Michigan.   My favorite spot is Windpoint, just north of Racine, Wisconsin.  I woke when it was still dark, checked the skies were clear, grabbed my gear and headed out.  I arrived just before dawn and noticed I didn’t have an SD card in my camera!  Oh, darn!  Found a Walgreens nearby so all was not lost.  By the time I got back the sun had made its appearance, but it wasn’t too late to catch a few good shots.    Stopped first by the lighthouse and the light was still very red.

Taking a shot directly into the sun, gave the appearance of a very red sky.  The water was warmer than the air so there was a lot of lake fog coming off the lake.   It was a surreal view.

I headed down the road a little bit to the Shoop Golf Course parking lot, which has wonderful views out to the lake.

Backtracking a bit, I took a quick shot across the little golf course.

It was a beautiful morning with a light hoarfrost covering the weeds and bushes .  With a little wind there was a silvery glow in the air.  It almost looked like a snow globe.
