Chicago Sunsets



Ever since I moved to Chicago I can honestly say the sunsets here are some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen. I titled this "untouched" because the pictures that I take from my balcony are untouched and all natural. I hope that you enjoy these and please leave me a comment.

Please click on picture for a larger view.

I have to say that I have seen my pictures around the web and I would appreciate it if you would at least link back to my site for credit.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon.

A weekend of cold weather and nice sunsets

Hello all, I have one good picture to share from last night and a few from tonight's awesome sky.

Here they are:

This is from today, Sunday around 5 o'clock.

Just a tad darker and such a great looking sky.

This is a keeper and one of my favorite pictures that I have taken recently. I lowered the light coming into the camera and caught the sky as it was changing. I hope you enjoyed this series and please be sure to tell a friend or 2, or 3...
Thank you for stopping by! Chris

Sweet Sunset in Chicago...

For two nights in a row we had the similar sunsets. This was a beautiful glow and I am hoping for many more of these.

Off to the Mystic Aquarium, Mystic, CT.

With the weather not cooperating in Chicago, I have dug into some of my favorite pictures of things "other than sunsets." These were taken at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT. If you are in the area this is a must see. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy. (Baby croc on turtles)

This picture seemed like the "group meeting" was going to take place. One minute the area was empty, and a minute later they all came out and gathered for the "meeting.” There is always a stubborn one in the group.

This is a favorite and one that I use as "wallpaper" on my computer all the time. I love this shot and feel free to use this for your own computer wallpaper. I hope you have enjoyed some of my trip to Mystic Aquarium; it is such a great time. (Let's hope for better weather in Chicago for more sunsets!)

Yesterday and Today - Chicago, IL

Thurday night produced a line that seemed to go for miles to the right of this view. It was great timing to catch this because after it went down, it was just a cloudy late afternoon in Chicago.



Tonight was very neat. We had lots of storm clouds that didn't produce rain or snow despite the fact that it was cold enough for snow. This is a break in the clouds around 5 p.m. To the right it was dark as night on the Northside of Chicago above Wrigley Field.
