A Breathtaking Aerial View of the Chicago Skyline as Reflected on Lake Michigan



A Breathtaking Aerial View of the Chicago Skyline as Reflected on Lake Michigan 1

While on approach to Chicago O’Hare International Airport last week after a business trip, amateur photographer glanced out his window at the setting sun and decided to pull out his iPhone to take a photo. Right then the plane banked for a 180-degree left turn over Lake Michigan for a final westward approach when an unexpected play of light occurred: the entire skyline of Chicago was suddenly projected in shadow from underneath the cover of clouds. It’s safe to say this is textbook definition of a once-in-a-lifetime shot. Photo courtesy Mark Hersch. (via Twisted Sifter)
