Foggy Fox River Valley

Foggy Fox River Valley

Twas a beautiful morning along the Fox River Valley today, and I couldn’t resist a few photos of my favorite tree. Here’s an in-the-field version from the camera to my phone. 1/200 F14 ISO100 at 105mm on Oct. 23, 2021 in Carpentersville, Ill.

Sunrise Tree, No. 2

Sunrise Tree, No. 2

Here’s the partner tree mentioned in yesterday’s post. You can see that I went wider with it and increased the depth of field a bit. A few minutes later, the sun popped up, and the shoot ended. Pre-order your print today at MidnightOwl.Gallery!   Eaves, […]

Sunrise Tree, No. 1

Sunrise Tree, No. 1

Here’s my first posting for 2020! Much more to come in the next few weeks as I kick off some new products over at Midnight Owl Gallery.

A few weeks ago I timed the weekly shopping trip with the sunrise, and I was blessed with a beautiful morning sunrise. Ever since last spring, I’d been wanting to get a silhouette of this tree (and one of its partner just to the north), and I finally made it happen.

A full-color version of a similar photo published here on June 7. One advantage of shooting sunrise shots in winter is you don’t have to get up insanely early to snag a nice shot. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Sunrise Chicago [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on […]

Sunrise at the Guard House

Sunrise at the Guard House

The North Avenue guard house offered a nice setting for a quick pic. Being the offseason, and a workday for many, I had the place nearly to myself. And no, that’s not lens distortion—someone backed into the pole.

Sunrise Bridge No. 2

Sunrise Bridge No. 2

After stopping for the low-angle shot, I paused on the bridge over Lake Shore Drive to enjoy a bit more of the lovely lakeshore sunrise. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Sunrise Bridge No. 2 [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/60 sec., […]

Sunrise Bridge No. 1

Sunrise Bridge No. 1

I was on a mission to get over to Photography Point. And I had to convince myself to stop. But the structure was too appealing to ignore, and I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to get a silhouette of the pedestrian overpass bridging Lincoln Park […]

Getting up before the break of dawn can be its own reward.
