As it got deeper into twilight I was able to capture more of the city lights in the background. I was also able to use longer exposures to create an interesting effect with the rotating Centennial Wheel
Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
This new 60m high wheel opened in May 2016 as part of the renovation of the Pier which started in 2013
Eyes on Chicago
Here is a single horizontal frame of the wheel with the cityscape behind. This sort of composition was my original inspiration for coming here during my stay in Chicago
