Sunrise on the Chicago skyline with Lake Michigan aglow. The 3 block rocks were covered with a coating of ice and along with the posts reminded me of Stonehenge.

Worked in Layers by placing two widely different exposed images on top of each other and removing parts of one image to leave the deep colors of the sky and keep the highlighted icy block rocks. This done using Adobe Photoshop CS3.

I enjoy photography of all kinds. If it was how I supported my family financially, it would be a dream come true.

    Outstanding Shot Adam. Colors are amazing and regardless of how much it does or does not compare to stonehenge, gotta give ya credit for creative titling. Chicagohenge …. I like it !!

  • Thanks John. All the rocks near Fulleron beach just gave me a Stonehenge feel I guess. I got lucky because the sunrise was a beauty.
