Picture a Day-Day 36

Yesterday we had the clearest skies and blindingly bright sun I've seen since summer long ago abandoned us for the Snow Miser. I just had to document it to help get me through this nasty winter (I think our reprieve will last a few days and then back to subzero weather).

It all started with this beautiful sunrise: Then once work was over I made my usual trek across campus to find my husband. Campus actually has a small section of prairie grass they grow every year (I think for the bugs, Entymologists are weird) I cross through.
Doesn't this picture almost look like the "You're all gonna die" desert scene from a movie?
This tree has so much character I remember it every walk, and as I wandered past it I saw the sun just peeking past its branch. So I felt compelled to take a picture.
I love campus when the students are all gone. In fact I think everyone is so happy when there are no students: the administration, faculty, staff, and most of all the students.

Is anyone else enjoying some gorgeous weather right now (or at least pretty picture weather)? What's your walk to work (or around work) look like? Anyone else missing spring and summer like crazy?

Also don't forget to leave a little comment down below if you are thinking of getting into this madness. I'll soon start compiling the list and try to find a nice place for it. I fear I may have to overhaul again to get all these links to fit.

But all the pretty pictures are worth it. I never would have thought to take a picture of the sunrise if I hadn't of been in the middle of this.

That is a very beautiful sunrise! I'm usually at work by the time that the sun rises, but during the fall, I saw a lot of sunrises as I was biking to work and they were beautiful.
I wish I could walk to work, but that would take probably about 2 hours or more. So I take the bus or C-train. Walking around my work isn't that exciting - it's mostly buildings of various sizes and depending on where you go, there are a fair amount of street people.
