The neat thing about having easy access to a clear view of the Chicago’s south side, the Museum of Science and Industry is that clear, cold nights present a beautiful cityscape. On a recent cold night, I pulled out the tripod to capture some images of the urban landscape. I hope you enjoy these 5* selections.


  • Museum Lights – The front of the Museum is ablaze with banners advertising one of its newest exhibits featuring mazes. Beyond the lights, you see the clear outline of the dome and beyond that, the lights and bustle of the city. On the far right, you can see a bus; street lights and high rises dot the background. Steam from exhaust pipes float across the night sky.


  • City Beyond The Museum – I love the layers in this image. We are looking at the west wing of the museum, which has a smaller entry for hanging banners. Beyond the Museum, the snow lightens up the ground, creating the lower light. Above this the trees, which seem to be strung together with a necklace of street lights. Beyond that, lights from the various buildings, high rises, mid-rise buildings, and homes glitter brightly against the dark of the impending night. Again in this image, the steam escaping from chimney stacks can be seen in the background. To set it all off, the setting sun has left a rosy purple tint to the evening sky.

I hope you enjoyed 5* images of the city’s night lights – south side view.
