What's your definition of brisk? I've been in Chicago in February, it was closer to brutal cold than brisk.:) Kudos to you and Leslie for going out to capture a beautiful image of winter in Chicago!!

Have a great day! #1563922

I agree with David - brisk is probably an understatement! But the image is gorgeous - fantastic reflections and color. #10978021

Love the way that blue stands out when I open the picture. Beautiful composing taking us around the curve to the gorgeous skyline. The reflection on the water is so special. Love it Ellen.
