Skyline on Lake Michigan January 16, 2013 | Chicago, IL

During last week's sunrise-bike ride to Navy Pier I noticed that Lake Michigan was calmer than usual, making for a rare opportunity to photograph the skyline reflected in the water. Capturing it, however, was easier said than done as I had to go down to the area located specifically for docking ships to set up my tripod. Still, not far enough away to remove the pier from the site of my camera, I leaned the tripod towards the water risking that a even the slightest breeze would inevitably push not just me but also my precious camera into the cold sea.

In the end, it was all worth it for this shot.

Wow…that is a wonderful shot of Chicago. Although I’ve never been to the windy city myself, I’ve heard a lot of stories of how it’s always windy there. I’m surprised that you were able to get a still shot like this one. Great Job! Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP Full Frame CMOS with 1080p Full-HD Video Mode Digital SLR Camera (Body)
