Over the Railyard

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 December 2020 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

View to the north as we make our way further out of the City of Chicago along Congress Parkway. The bridge we are driving across goes over the railyard below where mostly freight trains serve the city. The balustrade in front helps hide the view below and concentrate the views above.

Superb skyline. I visited Chicago a long time ago and I confess that I have forgotten a little because it was in 1972.

That is some view...I bet the view below is interesting, too. I have always wished I could find a map that had all the active railroads showing. It has been a while since I looked for one.

A lovely image of the skyline. I would want to be seeing what's going on in the rail yard. ;-)

a fine day for a skyline shot. the railing provides the shot with a fine anchor. Too bad they didn't place those lamp posts closer together - if you could have gotten one on the right it would have made a perfect bookend!

Wonderful view of the skyline. I love all the different types of architecture. I think that the Chicago skyline is one of most beautiful.

Using the balastrade in that way was ideal. It's even created a nice frame so the skyline is highlighted to its best.
