There was a lot of energy in the air on this warm summer afternoon in Chicago. Thunderstorms rolled though the city all day but the clouds broke up just enough at sunset to put some amazing color in the sky. Unfortunately there was a Bears pre-season game on this night and there was gridlock traffic all over the palace. Most of the other good spots to shoot the skyline from were closed so I drove frantically to make it to this spot to make it here before all the color was gone. I ran all the way from the parking lot with just enough time to set up my tripod and camera, snapped 1 photo, and then it started pouring. Walking back to the Jeep was not fun, I was literally soaked by the time I reached the lot, but at least I got this shot...
