Sunrise from Montrose Harbor

For something different, I set out to watch the sun rise over Chicago, Illinois from a different location. Normally I try to include the sun in the image, but this time I wanted to focus on the city and not the sun.

Sometimes the sunrise can illuminate things in an unusual way, and in this case, it turned everything above Chicago a bright pink. It’s not a color one see’s often above the city. Also, this picture was taken late enough in the morning (6:30AM) that a number of people were waking up to head out for work, thus, a lot of the lights in the windows are brightly-lit, helping add additional color to the photograph.

(0860) 1011.
