The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

sunrise-lake-michigan-january-30-2017-3

Good morning!  You know, this is the first sunny day we’ve had here in Chicago for weeks!  In case you were wondering why I hadn’t posted any sunrise pics recently, that is why!  There’s an interesting anomaly in this picture.  If you look to the right of the  sun, you will see two objects that appear to be rising from the water.  I think they are smokestacks from a barge out on Lake Michigan.  The words from the famous Pink Floyd Song, “Comfortably Numb” came to mind when I gazed out at the sunrise:  “A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon”.  For some reason, I tend to relate things I notice to song lyrics.  I don’t know why, really.  However, in this case, I think it matches quite nicely!

  6. Beautiful sunrise. This winter in Arizona, it’s been especially cool and cloudy. My favorite sunset spot has only been visited a couple of times this season because, well, no visible sunset! Expecting improved weather this week. Maybe I’ll get there and share a sunset or two this week! Keep warm there in that Chi-town!
