Today's post is for Ashley who said that my previously posted picture of the Marina Towers looked like corn on the cob. This is another long exposure, a bit zoomed out, of Marina Towers.

Cold Path to the Skyline

I goes without saying that this is my favorite place to photograph in Chicago. This is the Lake Shore Path just north of downtown near Oak Street Beach.

Frozen Staircase to Lake Michigan

Given how active I was in shooting during this past fall, I was really looking forward to capturing images like this, of the frozen ice around Lake Michigan. This shot was taken this past Sunday morning, it was just above 30 degrees and not as cold as it looks here.

This was captured this past Sunday morning along the Lake. Despite how cold it looks here, it was calm, comfortable 30 degrees.View Exif InformationView on Map

Saint Mary of the Angels Church

This is Saint Mary of the Angels Church. If it looks familiar, that is because it is the most visible of many churches in viewing range from the Kennedy.

Halsted Street Skyline View

I managed to avoid the temptation of seeking one of my usual spots along the Lake Shore Path for photos this morning. Instead, I headed a bit west and shot the city from above the train yard at the intersection of Chicago Ave and Halsted Street.
