It was an uncharacteristically warm day today for January. So it was a perfect day for an afternoon bike ride… or perhaps even a Protest March downtown! The lake is now mostly melted… except for a few sections in the shadow of the skyline buildings.

Slushy lake. Cool breezes. And a beautiful afternoon for a few urban sunset shots.

Beautiful clouds sweeping through Chicago this morning…
framing the skyline with wispy colored streaks.

The waves were crashing this morning… yet not everyone was happy to see them. Apparently there was a “fatality” along the way. Bad timing. Tragic & beautiful… as the sunrise lit up the monarch and the water drops that took it down!
