Snow Clouds Mid-April
A foreboding cloudscape -- belly full of snow & hail -- roll from the west unstealthfully over wide-plains, Hyde Park and the Loop. Shot taken from a windy & chilly 63rd Street Beach.

Skyway in Flaming Orange
In the evening -- when the Sun's low, at a certain angle and looking from a certain distance, it can reflect off of any type surface. Sometimes it's not a reflection but it turns an object into a flaming orange. This is the Chicago Skyway with the steel painted that customary reddish-brown -- but it was looking like the Sun was reflecting off of glass windows. I had cut down an unfamiliar street looking for any shot and there it was in the sky. And it lingered for awhile.
