Liquid Light and Night

The Chicago Skyline is always such a joy to see especially from Solidarity Drive close to the Shed Aquarium and the Planetarium. It is even better at night! Lake Michigan, now that it isn’t frozen, has such a nice calming sound of waves. The boats have almost all gone back to their harbors. There are a few remaining people milling about, taking pictures of their own and soaking it in. The skyline is just as much about Lake Michigan as it is about the skyscrapers.

For this photo, I was prepared to do this as an HDR photo, but instead I opted for the over exposed image. There’s something awesome about the lights shining off of Lake Michigan. I was inspired so much by it that I’ll have a follow up image a little next week that one will be much more impressionistic.
