Insomnia

The past few days I haven't been sleeping too well, waking up far too early for any sane person. Now I can't tell if it is because I'm getting/already am sick, or if my cat is plotting some messed up game of torment to wake me up at 3. Regardless, I decided to make the most of it the other morning and visit a favorite Chicago location of mine, Fullerton Beach. I love this place, as it offers such an incredible view of downtown away from the hustle and bustle and the rocky foreground here is a fun adventure to navigate through. I captured a number of photographs that I was pretty pleased with but this may have been my favorite. it's one of those shots that when you view it on that tiny LCD screen, you know then it will turn out well. This is a single image, 60 second exposure using my trusty ND filter. This is certainly the only positive thing to come from insomnia.

Have a great weekend!
