Chicago Winter Chill

Chicago as seen from the North Avenue Beach. Winter was fading away, but it wasn't going out without a fight that evening. It was windy, and a biting cold, standing on that boardwalk, but it helped make for an exceptionally crisp clear evening. The wind made it pretty hard to keep the tripod steady. Luckily, I make a decent windbreak, but I still lost the majority of the pictures to some camera jitter. Look forward to going back, on a less windy night, and getting a picture with the dusk or dawn light. I tried for a picture from the south side, at Adler Planetarium, earlier in the trip, but it was raining and foggy. Have to leave something for next time.
