But it sure looks nice

August 23, 2009

My first weeks in Chicago were spent at an airport hotel.  It sucked, truly.  But if I had to find something positive to say about it, I would have to go with the fact that my room faced west which really allowed me to appreciate the rather stunningly colorful sunsets.   While the flat open terrain certainly provided a huge palate –  I theorized that it was actually the pollution (in this instance toxic jet fuel resiude) that accentuated the streams of light.

Thankfully  I no longer live at the airport but I still spend time in that area and on occasion I manage to accidently catch a sunset.   This particular photo likely had nothing to do with pollution,  it was taken moments after a sunshower, but the effect is similar.
