Ice Planet

This was taken the other morning on what was actually a pretty mild mid-thirty degree morning. While I generally am not a fan of our Chicago winters, I welcome the change in season this year as it presents some new photo opportunities.

Wire Skyline

After last weeks photo shoot in the extreme cold, it was very refreshing going out this week in the mid 30s. So much so, in fact, that I took this shot practically rolling around on the frozen concrete.

This is a long exposure - 85 seconds to be exact - of the Chicago Skyline from one of my favorites spots, just north of Oak Street Beach on the Lake Shore Path.

Cool Tones of Tribune Tower

This shot definitely has a 'cool' feel to it. I really like the contrast of the violet sky and amber light coming from the inside of the building. I'd be lying if I said I had considered this when setting up for the shot, but sometimes you just get lucky.

I went on a parking garage expedition the other morning, trying to find some unique perspectives of the city. I came across this excellent view of the Willis (or Sears) Tower.

Winter is Here

I went out for a winter bike ride the other morning and it was cold! Despite the tough weather, I layered up and was able to get a photo of the fresh powder near the lake shore path by Castaways.
