Chicago skyline seen from the Adler Planetarium. A friend convinced me to get some night time captures of the Chicago skyline. This was my first capture during twilight where the sun has recently set behind the skyline. Subsequent captures of the skyline during the evening hours produced great reflections of light off of Lake Michigan.

Photo taken February 14, 2010.

I love the hues of orange and blue, even when the orange is not the setting sun but the light polution on the streets.
