Chicago River's night skyline

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Mary O'Grady

Returning from a boat excursion on Lake Michigan we were stationary in the locks on the Chicago River. Numerous shots were taken to capture the best lighting and staying steady with no tripod. The last shot was this one with the boat pulling into frame. Trump Tower and the Wrigley Building are the focal points with an interesting past sunset sky.

Location: Chicago, Illinois
