Photo of the Week: Chicago Skyline from Lake Michigan.

The Chicago skyline as seen from Lake Michigan at sunset. Absolutely stunning! Was on the open water on a yacht. The gathering was sponsored by Akamai Technologies during the Internet Retailer Conference. I’m not just a traveler, I’m also an Internet, web design and social media geek.

That was my first taste of seeing the city and skyline from the lake and being at sunset just made it all that more remarkable. Captured part of the yacht for effect and also the flash off my camera makes it look like there is a UFO right over the city haha. πŸ™‚

Have you ever been out on Lake Michigan in Chicago? What are your favorite cities to see from the water?

  1. Considering what coffee shop you frequent in Chicago, I believe that it indeed is a UFO. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

    Chicago skyline is gorgeous and one of the most beautiful ones in the world. And I don’t say this just because I live here. Coming back home from trips is made easier by the sight of the skyline from the plane…

    • Haha great point! πŸ™‚ There are so many places to capture the skyline from, I get goose bumps when driving in from the south and then on Lake Shore, watching the skyline get bigger and bigger.

  2. There are many outstanding views of the Chicago skyline. The two best are from the Shedd Acquarium and from the lake. Great job at capturing one of the best.

    • Have seen pictures, but couldn’t believe how beautiful it was up-close on the lake. Love the skyline views from the walkway between the aquarium and Adler Plantarium, gonna have to check it out from Shedd itself. Thanks for the tip!
