We shot these a few weeks ago as the sun was setting over the Detroit River and the Ambassador Bridge during those last few magical minutes before the sun sank below the horizon. On Sunday, I ran the Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank International Half Marathon and saw this same beautiful sky from a different perspective. In the early morning twilight hours as the sun was just barely making its appearance for the day, myself and thousands of other runners pounded the pavement step by step making the climb over the bridge up and over to cross in to Canada. The same color light lit the city on Sunday morning and the view from bridge was simply breathtaking. I wish I could have captured the moment in more permanent form to share instead of it being a memory, but unfortunately, the twenty pictures shot on my phone were blurred by my movements as I attempted to multitask photography and running simultaneously. Probably not the smartest thing to attempt considering my lack of coordination on two feet.
