Chicago River

Went to Chicago today and caught this shot of the Chicago River about 2pm. This water arch shoots out across the river for several minutes at a time. Ive never been at this spot at the right time before. It was a very clear day downtown and this really was a pretty sight.


Hope you had a nice weekend :-)

    Thanks for your comment, Theresa. Just wanted you to know that because of some perfect lighting, what you thought was water behind the tulips I shot was actually pavement! Just goes to show that good lighting can make anything beautiful. Hope you have a nice week!

    Excellent capture. I'm surprised that thing is still running - I remember it from the mid 90's.

    This is beautiful Theresa, I think I have stood in that same place but the weather was overcast for me. Lucky you to be only 30 miles or so from the big I like the light for this and that spray of water is lovely. So what would a condo go for in that building...3/4 mil or more for a small one....:-))

    Great image! I like the point of view. The weather was perfect for you too!
    I have some Images from the film days - while this was still a new water feature of the river that you have inspired me to find!

    I'm so impressed when people can get a good shot in bright sun. This is really gorgeous. The colors are all so clear and vivid. Excellent work!

    Great photo, slim frame and drop shadow. You took it perfectly and put it together professionally (even better than that).
  • Justin Kern 6y
