Foggy South Loop Chicago skyscrapers by delobbo Foggy South Loop Chicago skyscrapers by delobbo
click to view at 1024px . 1314px

curious circumstance in Chicago, with low-lying fog / clouds rolling in, very slowly. it stayed like this for hours...

Taken with 200mm 2.8L on the 7D, uncropped, these buildings are 1.16 miles away from my vantage point.

Light pollution, not the smog kind. Sodium vapor lights give everything an orange or yellow cast at night. So that's just fog like it says.

During an overcast night in winter with snow on the ground, it's actually possible to read a newspaper just by the light coming from Chicago 50mi away.

Even on clear nights, it's a problem if you're into astronomy.

Occasionally there is smog pollution in summer, but it's fairly rare. There's typically just enough wind so it doesn't get too bad.
