A Cold Winter Morning

These sunrise pictures weren't taken this morning although the thermometer one was! And at -31 degrees Celsius its cold!!! Yesterday a photo would have shown -34!! Its on days like this, when you can see the wood smoke rising from the chimneys in a straight line , that you're thankful that the wind isn't blowing, for an added dimension of cold is created by the wind and with a wind chill factored in it gets even colder!

These sunrise photos were taken in January, 2008

YIKES!!! -31
I can't image what that even means! I grew up in Southern California & then moved to Florida. I know 100, or 98, or even 40, but I do not know -31. Best you stay indoors I guess. Have a nice weekend.

Wow! Those are some cold temps! Frost bite must be a common threat for everyone..?? You did a beautiful job with your sunrise pictures. Wonderful color captures..I really like the mirror image, all the warm colors still gives us hope that Spring is somewhere around that corner!!

I would have to pack up and fly south! I really don't stand the cold well. We are back up to 19 and rising. Good! The sunrise photos are great and I like when you do that in the sideview mirror. I think I'd stay in the car for all my photos right now! You must be an expert at dressing warmly. By the way, that sack that the birds are eating from is very pretty and fancier than any I have seen.

Wonderful photos...great light and textures.

Brrrrrrr, it's cold here, too. It was down to 2 degrees above zero Fahrenheit.

I have given your site an award, and you can find it here.

Thanks goodness for no wind over there. It's really started to blow here, total whiteout and everything blowing sideways! The sunrise you captured is wonderful!

Good grief! You're colder than we are and you're sending that down to us in Chicago. Yikes!

Gorgeous pictures! I love the one in the side mirror. So, that was last year. Too chicken to go out at dawn this year? Me too. I'm not going out AT ALL. It's warm inside.
