Sun Rises over Chicago and Lake Michigan by taffy

Sun Rises over Chicago and Lake Michigan

From my window at about 6:30 a.m., I could see the sunrise reflecting on Lake Michigan as I looked down Washington Blvd. This is the first sunrise I've seen since we've lived in this unit (as sunrise, to me, occurs in the middle of the night). If you look down the street, you first see Millennium Park and the sculpture over the stage, then the light from the sky reflected on the lake's surface. Almost worth insomnia!
This one is spectacular, Taffy. Your big city shots always leave me so impressed, but this one really blew me away with those colors.

I'm also not familiar with this thing you call sunrise, so I'm glad you treated us to an amazing photo of one. Lots of lights on for that time of day!

I do like looking in other peoples windows at night ;)

What a fabulous view of the city made even more spectacular with that lovely sunrise! When I zoom in on all those windows I feel like I am in the Hitchcock film Rear Window. Fascinating! Love all those colours!

Almost breathtaking... but all those buildings lit up at dawn !
February 4th, 2020  
Superb! I cannot believe this is from your window!! What a view you have. Wow.
February 4th, 2020  
I'm not a morning person either but with views like that I could be tempted to become one. I love the glimpses through the windows.

The morning light provided a super backdrop for this cityscape. As usual, your details are impeccable. Glad you were awake to capture it. I’m another one who rarely sees the sunrise.

@pamknowler @mzzhope Thank you both! I was so pleased to see it there as it was a unique time of day for me to photograph. That made it very special.

Congratulations on being the Top of the Top for the week Taffy! Very deserving! I love all the elements in this image! Belated FAV!
February 7th, 2020  
Congratulations! Of course this is at the top of the Top Twenty! If you were so inclined I know the Chicago Chamber of Commerce would market your fair city with brochures using your photos. I’m sure local art galleries would display your work, as so many of your images are art. Businesses in downtown Chicago would love this in their offices, printed on metal, in a large format. This is a stunning example of your talent.

deserved and achieved top of the pops - fantastic :)))
