Lakeshore Winter Sunrise Droning

lake point tower
Last week we had some warmer, sunny days so I decided to drag myself out of bed at the ungodly hour of 4:30am to get ready and get down to the lakefront for some drone shots. Mainly of the St Regis Chicago for a client project but there’s one shot in particular that I grabbed after I got, um, a little too close to Lake Point Tower. But it’s probably my favorite of the morning 🙂 Those accidents are often favorites. Think it has something to do with having no expectations set. Kinda like with anything in life, don’t you think…
Anyway, it’s the image you see above. Always love a good contrast and the half-light/half-shadow is an interesting way to see the curve of Lake Point Tower. Not to mention the warmth of the sun on the building and the trees contrasting with the coolness of the snow-covered ground and the black of the building, pavement, and Lake Michigan.
Of course, I do like some of the wider shots of the St Regis Chicago, so I thought I’d share a few of those here with you. In the order they were shot…

I just love this city!

There will be much more of this building as the year progresses. Stay tuned! And, hopefully, a few more happy accidents 😉
