Chiberia's Skyline

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 13 February 2019 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A view of the Chicago skyline as seen from Montrose Harbor.
This was taken a few days after Chicago experienced a near record cold temperature. Chicago was colder than many locales around the world known for its cold temperatures.

I didn't want to venture out with my camera during the cold weather for fear that it would lead to condensation building inside the camera itself.

The white amoebic form that you see in the middle of the photo are shards of ice that were paper thin and piled on top of each other, perhaps due to currents under the ice.

Photo captured February 2, 2019.

NIKON D7000 1/180 second F/6.7 ISO 200 50 mm

What a beautiful image of the Chicago skyline, Steven, especially with the snow/ice in the foreground. I lived in that windy city for a year way back in my 20s and know how cold it can get.

Current winters are full of surprises. It was a long time for us to snow and the frosts were tough. Now the air has slipped and, according to ennsuteidfen, the temperatures will rise many degrees above the nail. Right now there is a degree of frost and snow falling.

Vraiment impressionnant cette glace et je comprends ton inquiétude pour ton APN.
Ce sont des Bernaches du Canada ?
Merci pour les explication.
