Photo Of The Week - Stunning Sunrise

Melanie Helmuth

Earlier this week, on Monday, a lot of people in Michiana captured images of a particularly beautiful sunrise. You may have seen some of the many shots that were posted to social media. Thanks to Melanie Helmuth of Goshen for WVPE's latest Photo of the Week that is yet another example of that gorgeous sunrise. She snapped this photo at Fidler Pond in Goshen. Melanie says many days during work, she drives past Fidler Pond and sees amazing sunrises, but never gets to stop. Monday she was off work and decided to finally stop and enjoy the sunrise! We're glad she did.

Photo Of The Week - Lake Wawasee Tranquility

Mar 12, 2020
Dawn Burns

It's been a crazy week between the markets, coronavirus and primary elections.  So let's all just take a deep breath and enjoy a tranquil sunrise. This image comes to us courtesy of Dawn Burns of Syracuse, Indiana. Dawn captured this scene on Lake Wawasee on August 5, 2019, at 6:31am when it was a balmy 62 degrees. She says she was struck by the quiet and still nature of the lake that morning with what she calls a perfect balance of mist and color. Dawn says she happened upon this image during one of her regular morning walks to the lake.
