Sometimes it's hard to tell where the lake ends and the sky begins. Until one sees the faint glow of a distant lighthouse...

Please look closely. The last of the images from my recent rainy night shoot on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. This is my personal favorite. See if you can figure out why.

This is my favorite winter cycling picture from this year. I was riding late at night, on fresh snow, and in complete solitude. The shoreline was ensconsed by ever-shifting fog and low clouds. The lights of the city in the background and the lights along the lakefront mingled with the fog to create a memorable atmosphere. The fog was just along the shore; it dissipated into black as one gazed out over Lake Michigan. The headlight on my bike illuminated the fresh snow just ahead but it could not touch the great expanse before me, clothed in an impenetrable darkenss. One might take it as a metaphor for the capacity of the human mind to comprehend the truths of metaphysics. Or perhaps it works better as a metaphor for the current state of society. To the extent that the future can be grasped at all, it seems bleak and dark. But there is also hope; the night will not last forever.

It was -21 degrees F with windchill around -50 F when I took this picture this morning. It was an amazing scene with huge amounts of steam billowing out of the areas of Lake Michigan that weren't frozen yet. There was also lots of blowing snow. One of the more memorable sunrises that I've witnessed.
