In my opinion, Chicago has one of the world's greatest skylines. Not only has this easily become one of my favorites but it also has become a favorite around my office among some of the former Chicagoans. I've seen it on more than a couple desktop wallpapers :)

My strongest memory of this photo was simply how bitterly cold it was when I took it. My wife and daughter were with me at the time and they were such troopers as they waited in the freezing cold for dad to set up his gorillapod over and over again along the railing. At the time I was worried it was a waste of time, but now I know the results were worth it.

Taken with a Canon 7D with Canon 10-22mm lens with a Gorillapod. Edited in Lightroom.
