I went out to get some night shots and just my luck the sky clouded over and blocked the moon and stars. Since I had already made the trip I decided to shoot a roll anyway. This image was taken on 2.19.05. Provia 100, f8 for 4 minutes.

The glow along the horizon are the lights along lake michigan from indiana on the left to chicago, IL, on the right. If you look closely just to the right of the red light on the left under the catwalk you can see smoke from a stack at the gary, IN, steel mills. I liked the way this 3:1 crop looked. Since I didn't have stars in the sky I didn't feel the need to keep the big sky so I cropped it off.
