"Go West Young Man" - Dusk's Reflection

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 28 October 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

For the first time, I photographed the Chicago skyline from the west. I came across a fellow Flickr member's blog where he identified the Rush Hospital parking garage as an ideal place to capture the skyline from the west.

My intent was to capture the setting sun's warm colors reflecting off of the buildings. As I drove to the garage, I feared I wouldn't make it up in time. I drove my car all the way up to the 8th floor of the parking garage and had about two minutes to spare. Later in the evening, I realized I could have parked on the main level and taken the elevator up. DOH! Would have been much quicker!
