Hot Summer Night – Photographs

On a hot summer night this Sunday, I visited beautiful Grant Park for the first time in years. Photos are from Grant Park’s Seven Bridges, hidden beach, golf course, and more. Don’t leave summer!

Scared all the Sunday golfers away for a moment…

McKinley Beach


Super windy and gorgeous day, which always make the flags look great.

Excellent way to end a lakefront trip! This is a frame grab from the above video.

Sunrise at Bradford Beach – video


Was up way too early so I headed to Bradford to capture the sunrise.

It was a cold May morning (not quite 50 F when I arrived), but this meant very few people would be around. Especially nice while leaving my camera setup on the bridge for half an hour.
