Have you wondered which city has the most beautiful skyline in North-America? Personally, I would vote for Chicago. The city has a lot of great places where you can take nice skyline photos. The skydeck, for example, has extended glass boxes to have a greater view of the skyline. This is not for people who are afraid of heights!You might not be convinced, but I’ve had a lot of opportunities to do some skyline photography in Chicago. When I was walking to the waterfront of Chicago, I had the chance to capture the pictures below.
At the Buckingham Fountain in Chicago, I experimented with a flashlight and long exposure. Me and 2 guys I met in a hostel in Chicago managed to create the shot below. Andre, one of those guys is a German from Berlin. Since we met in Chicago we even met in Brussels. He makes long travel trips and is also a travel blogger. His blog is weltreise-berlin.de
Here’s one with the fountain in full action.
This is the fountain during the day. I’m a night owl just because some things are more beautiful at night, don’t you agree?
The reflection of the Cloud Gate in Millennium Park is another great way to snap the skyscrapers of Chicago…
Another great place to snap Chicago’s skyline is Navy Pier.
Before leaving Chicago, Mother Nature treated me with these amazing bolts of lightning. Such big lightning are really unseen in Europe.
Which city beats Chicago’s beautiful skyline you think?
