River Canyon Light by Bruce Leighty in Cityscapes

As I often chronicle with many of my image uploads, I search for and love special light. Such was the case Saturday, May 23 when that special light quality found its way into the city shortly after sunrise.

The early morning light fresh off the sunrise casts an illuminating glow through a Chicago River canyon leading to Trump Tower on a beautiful spring morning. The angle of light at this time of year bathes the area in special light not available at most times of the year.

The river reflections are created by that low-angled sun bouncing off Trump Tower. The effect provides strong, angular lighting from two directions helping to create a special-quality effect.
