Chicago, from John Hancock Tower


Mary-Ella Bowles level-deluxe May 07, 2005

This is totally cool, Patrick. I've really got to learn how to do this nightime photography thing. How did you do this? - inquiring minds want to know... ;-) #246183

Evy Johansen level-classic May 08, 2005

Wow - Wonderful image, Patrick! #1329545

Michelle R. Kovach May 08, 2005

Wonderful shot Patrick! You sure do get to go a lot of places!
Happy Mother's day to all the ladies in your life!

Patrick Campbell May 08, 2005

Thanks Mary-Ella, Evy, and Michelle! This was taken from the observatory on the the 94th floor. Like the Empire State Building, it's set up for tourists and they charge admission. Unlike the ESB they let me take a tripod, but I was discreet about using it. Exposure time was 2 1/2 seconds. The time of day--a little while after sunset--was the crucial thing for the colors. Because we were behind glass I had to be careful to avoid reflections. As you can see the view from this tower is phenomenal! #1330934

Thank you Kerby! #1366389

Rhonda Smith May 26, 2005

And another gorgeous one Patrick... you have a great vantage point for these shots too!! #1399955

Patrick Campbell May 26, 2005

Thanks Rhonda! If the weather is cooperating it's definitely worth the $10 for admission. My first time up there, hopefully not my last. Somebody local told me they stay open after dark, unlike the Sears Tower--another popular vantage point in Chicago. #1400634
