Backyard Winter Dawn Sky in New Jersey.

There were some subtle colors in the sky at dawn. I used a different camera today — Leica T with a wide-angle zoom lens (11-23 mm). There is significant distortion when the lens is used at 11 mm. For comparison, the first horizontal image is at 11 mm, and the 2nd image is a composite of 5 vertical images at 23 mm.
