Chicago Looking More Like MiamiMay 23, 2017
It was a gorgeous day yesterday for aerial photography in Chicago - we grabbed the helicopter and captured several sites on the north side, downtown, in the western suburbs, and near O'Hare.
Below is one of my favorite shots from the flight, an aerial from over the Chicago River, looking southeast out towards Lake Michigan. The lake was so blue it reminded me of imagery I've captured over Miami. It does not always look this way, however: sustained east or northeast winds will churn up shoreline and create a muddy brown. Fortunately the winds are more often from the west and we can imagine we're over the Caribbean when looking down at the lake.
