Viewpoints: My {Lake Michigan Sunrise} View

It's my favorite post of the month!  It's time for another trip around our Viewpoints blog circle.  Last month I shared my Chicago at night view from a trip to downtown Chicago with my good friend, Kristen Ryan of Kristen Ryan Photography.  We trekked around the city that night shooting nighttime cityscapes.  After sleeping for a few hours at the Drake Hotel, we got up at 5am to catch the Lake Michigan sunrise.  There were no clouds which is definitely a disappointment for us landscape photographers but the colors were beautiful.  If I can drag myself out of bed, I usually find that sunrise is my favorite and most peaceful time of the day.  This was no exception and despite getting splashed by an extremely cold and aggressive wave, it was the perfect way to end our shooting trip in the city.  Here are a few of my favorites from that morning:
