Morning Greeting

 As I headed East toward Midtown Coffee around 6:45 a.m., I was greeted by a brilliant red sky. I stopped in the parking lot to get these photos.  For the sunrise, I cropped out all the human constructions so I could pretend I was seeing this from a mountain top or a meadow in the forest.
Toward the South, where the sky was still dark enough, I could see the Morning Star, also knows as planet Venus, and a crescent moon.  You might need to click on the photo to enlarge it in order to see Venus.  These were both shot with a normal, 55mm lens, not a telephoto.  Crows and Stellar's Jay in the vicinity were squawking, but I never saw them.
