This was the spectacular winter sunrise over the frozen Blue Wing Pond in Pickerington Ponds Metro Park in Franklin County, Ohio. With the late-January temperatures being consistently below freezing, the ponds had frozen over, so the usual morning waterfowl weren't present. In the chilling wind I could hear a bald eagle’s calls echoing from across the pond. A thin cloud covered the entire sky, but the sun was still able to shine through, though that didn’t last long. The clouds were later too thick for any direct sunlight.
