Last night I went out to shoot the skyline of Chicago. Sunset was at 6:37PM so I left the house shortly after 5PM wearing shorts and a T-shirt, as it was a bright, sunny, 85 degrees outside. In a matter of ten minutes the temperature plummeted 20 degrees. By the time I reached the lakefront it was 65 and the fog was screaming in from Lake Michigan. Also, since I was wearing shorts and T-shirt I was happy to have a jacket and pants in the trunk of my car.
While my sunset pictures didn’t turn out to be anything like I was hoping for, it was still pretty fascinating to watch the fog roll in and engulf the skyline. It made for some pretty spectacular images, and gave me something quite a bit different than I was aiming for.
