Purple planetarium panorama

As I’ve mentioned before, taking a photograph of the Chicago skyline from the planetarium can be low-hanging fruit. There are a million of these panoramas out there, and it’s hard to compete with the greats. I posted one panorama very early on in this blog’s existence that I was pretty pleased with. I also feel that this one has its charms. It was taken on a warm summer night out on the Adler Planetarium’s campus. Compare the warm feel of this one to the chilly world of “Chicago the Graphic Novel.” Now that the cold November air has begun to pour in from the great white north, I remember fondly the feeling of the warm summer breeze out by the lake. The sea wall surrounding Adler is understandably busy during the summer months, the whole city stretched out before you, the water lapping at the cement, it’s a great place for a reflection.
This image was taken with an 85mm lens and stitched together from about eight separate frames to produce this panorama. The image is large enough that I had to compress it just to fit it on flickr :) .
