Chicago Sunrise

date April 13, 2011 location Chicago, IL comments 7 Comments

I took this a couple weeks ago while out shooting with Dave Wilson on North Ave. Beach. I find taking pictures of the sunrise and sunset in Chicago to be very difficult. Since there are so many tall buildings it's tough to capture a cool image of the setting/rising sun along with those very buildings that make Chicago recognizable.

Beautiful colors. Like how the metal rods are pointing right to the sun.

Nice image with a great sunset. I like the cloud movement.

Great sky! I suspect I was somewhere behind you and to the right shooting a panorama of the skyline at this point. Either that, or I was rubbing my arms ferociously to stave off terminal hypothermia :-)

The latter sounds more accurate, Dave :)
