21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Drone/Aerial
Chicago Lighthouse

The lighthouse guarding the entrance to Chicago's harbor is an icon for the city that I've sailed by innumerable times. From the air, however, the cascade of geometric shapes that form the different components of the structure provide a delightful composition that caps off the rocky breakwater itself. In the late Fall afternoon sun, the shadow cast by the tower provides another element of depth to the composition
