During last week's sunrise-bike ride to Navy Pier I noticed that Lake Michigan was calmer than usual, making for a rare opportunity to photograph the skyline reflected in the water. Capturing it, however, was easier said than done as I had to go down to the area located specifically for docking ships to set up my tripod. Still, not far enough away to remove the pier from the site of my camera, I leaned the tripod towards the water risking that a even the slightest breeze would inevitably push not just me but also my precious camera into the cold sea.

In the end, it was all worth it for this shot.
