The first of three plates captured, before stitching all three together into a panoramic skyline, which is the fourth plate. I walked down to the Adler Planetarium (which extends east into Lake Michigan) to get some shots of the planetarium and when I turned around, I was quite astounded! The entire Chicago skyline was staring me right in my face. And what better day filled with blue skies and sunshine. Even after getting a few rounds of photos taken by hand, I felt I needed the extra "security" of having some of these shots captured with the help of a tripod....JUST IN CASE. And to be honest, when I looked at the photos on my computer, I wasn't sure which photos were taken with and without the tripod. Which I guess could be a good thing. Right?
Trying to identify the buildings here, left to right include the 311 South Wacker Building, Sears (Willis) Tower, AT & T Corporate Center, Kluczynski Federal Building, and the CNA Center (red building). The low-rise building in front of/below Sears Tower is the Chicago Hilton Hotel.
UPDATE: I stand corrected. All four plates this week were captured from the Museum Campus. Next week's panoramic shot is from the Adler Planetarium.
