Doom

It was cold and damp in Chicago today.  I went out to photograph the fog, but it had largely dissipated by the time I arrived.  All I could do was go for a workout, and then make sure I was out on the Chicago River just before dusk.  The fog lingered a bit, which I knew from Paris would produce a lush bluish purple sky.  As I got into position, it started drizzling, and by the time I was set up, it was raining, so I had to work fast.  And then my cable release broke, so I needed to manually operate the shutter.  Seems to have worked OK on this 3 to 4 second exposure at f11.

I gave some thought to reducing the amount of water in the foreground--and I could have because I shifted several times as I made multiple exposures--but the reflected colors were so lovely, particularly as doom descends upon us tomorrow.
