Madison Sunrise



The Ohio River is the boundary between Indiana and Kentucky. One of the most historic towns along that stretch is Madison, Indiana. It has a lot of very historic mansions and buildings. My wife and I stayed in a hotel overlooking the town. When we got up in the morning, this was the view out of our window. The big hills in the background are actuallly the bluffs of Kentucky across the river. The colors are faded because they are further away, and there is mist coming up from the river. The buildings in the foreground are a bold yellowish color, giving the feeling of the strong, early morning sunrise. It is autumn, as you can tell from the leaves. There is atmospheric perspective because the closer buildings are painted bigger and more detail, while those in the background fade and the detail is much less apparent.
