A Full Reveal

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 January 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A full "reveal" of yesterday's nighttime capture of the Chicago skyline as taken from the Adler Planetarium, which incorporates Willis Tower and the John G. Shedd Aquarium on the left and Lake Michigan in the foreground. The Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois Building on the right is lit up in honor of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. As you can see, various offices of the building are all aglow on multiple levels to spell out "MLK" in his honor.

Photo captured January 19, 2013.

I love this one, Steven - especially the aquarium...that's at the end of a long "pier" isn;t it? I think you have show a wonderful series from there before..To me, Chicago has just a magnificent and dynamic skyline - one of the very best I think... Thank you for this :-)
