It’s Sunday morning just after sunrise in Chicago this past weekend. I’ve got my large coffee in hand. It’s winter time and you can see your breath outside. There was no snow on the ground though, so I thought why not walk the beach.
I get to North Avenue Beach along Lake Michigan just outside the downtown area and start walking. It being early morning the first thing I noticed was the thin layer of frost on the sand. I had never seen that before.
I became more fascinated with the frosty sand while looking down at it as I walked. Then I looked up and over a little bit towards the south and wallah the Chicago skyline is right in front of me.
A beautiful view to just chill (literally), capture skyline shots and drink my peanut butter mocha (more on that in a future post).
There were people jogging on the beach and along nearby Lake Shore Drive. Lot’s of other people out with coffee and walking their dogs along the shoreline.
I turned towards Lake Michigan to get some shots. You can see the Chicago Lighthouse off in the distance.
Hanging out at the beach while drinking some java was the perfect way to start the day. This is one of the many great places that I’ve gotten great Chicago skyline shots from, some found by accident. Where are your favorite places to get Chicago skyline shots? Winter skyline shots in general?
Well back to getting some more city beach shots I go!
