Red sky at morning . . .

. . . sailor take warning.

I was up with the crows (or in this case ravens) this morning, and a thunderstorm system moving across just before and during sunrise produced some amazing color.

The ravens where wheeling around in front of some of the most striking color, and of the 75 frames I tried, only this one turned out well.

Canon 30D, Canon 400 f5.6L, iso1600, 1/400 at f5.6, handheld, one-shot focus mode, center focus point, crop, lots of fiddling with selective sharpening and noise ninja

Very nice! There have been some incredible sunrises this week - I'm glad to see you have a chance to take advantage of one!

Just re-read my reply, and it sounded kind of "catty"! Didn't mean that. I've watched the sunrises the last couple of days and have drooled over 'em, but have been in the wrong place at the wrong time to get a shot on my way to work. Really AM glad to see you got to take advantage of one!

Beautiful shots Steve. We had a very unique almost pink sunset here last night. Unfortunately, I was on the road without a camera. I was returning from my daughters volleyball game in Caledonia last evening. I am sure you know the area well. That sunset and all the bluffs had me wishing I had the camera.

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it.
