A Frozen Sunrise

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 January 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Capture of the morning sunrise from the Waukegan Yacht Club. The below zero windchill was producing steam rising from the lake's surface as can be seen here, just outside the inner harbor. I awakened to see the clouds all lit up from the sunrise which sent me down to secure a few captures. This was the first capture when I feared I would miss out on all the color. Subsequent opportunities had me running on the breakwater extending beyond the inner harbor.
