Backyard Winter Sky in New Jersey. Red Clouds at Dawn.

From my bedroom window and out of the corner of my eye, I saw the sky light up at dawn. I rushed to get a camera with a wider angle lens and got out just in time to catch this from my back door. The colors faded within minutes. Two versions, one 9 x 16 format, the other 4 x 5 and includes the moon. Let me know which you like best.
