Red Predawn Light Over the Chesapeake Bay

In the early dawn, the light over the bay goes from hints of red, to yellows and oranges before sunrise. If the clouds are right off to the east, it can be spectacular. Having lived in this house overlooking the bay for five years, I have seen hundreds of sunrises. None have had this dramatic a red.
