A Photo of Chicago’s Skyline Casting a Shadow on Lake Michigan


Chicago-based commercial photographer Nick Ulivieri was shooting aerial photos over his city last Friday when he captured this gorgeous photo of Chicago’s skyline casting a shadow over Lake Michigan.

“This shot was taken this past Friday during a helicopter flight for a client shoot,” Ulivieri tells PetaPixel. “We had to climb in altitude to set-up the next shot, so I had the pilot swing out over the lake while we did that to catch this shot of the shadows of Chicago’s skyscrapers reaching out over Lake Michigan.”

Ulivieri was shooting with a Nikon D800 and a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens at ISO 640, 1/1000s, f/9, and 24mm. You can find more of his work on his website, blog, Instagram, and Flickr.
