Harvest Moon in January?

Yesterday morning I caught a strange sight. The setting moon in waxing gibbous was orange in color. This color is usually associated with the Harvest Moon. Very strange!

Winter at Ping Tom Park

I have finally got a chance to snap a few shots of Ping Tom Park in Winter. Ping Tom Park is located along the Chicago River behind Chinatown. The Pagoda is the only structure located in the park.

Pinkish Sky

Last Friday, the snowstorm came to an end and the sky was clearing. We had an interesting pinkish sky just before daybreak :)

Happy New Year!

With the arrival of the really cold weather, we finally have blue skies. New Year's Day started with the sun rising above US Cellular Field AKA Sox Park!

Saturday morning started cold with a temp of 7 degrees but since I missed the moon on New Years Eve, it was a good chance to snap a pic of the still nearly full moon.
