Apricot Sky by Bruce Leighty in Cityscapes

I have indeed been blessed with outstanding light during my trips to the big city this year. As often is the case in late summer/early autumn the light quality begins to change with the season. On my most recent venture to capture the skyline at sunset and dusk I was blessed with great fall lighting even without the benefit of any cloud cover to enhance or absorb the color.

An apricot-hued sunset and sky highlights a portion of the Chicago skyline beyond ships in Burnham Harbor and Soldier Field. The most significant structures in the scene are, from left, the Chase Bank Building, CNA Center, the Legacy at Millenium Park, Smurfit-Stone Building, Trump Tower, One Prudential Plaza, Two Prudential Plaza, the Aon Cener and the Blue Cross-Blue Shield Tower, Soldier Field, of course (both old and new architectural sections) is sandwiched between the harbor and the skyline.

Ah! lighting can be everything and this light helps to proof we live in and around a truly beautiful city. (I am partial after all as it is my home town.)
