While developments like the massive Hancock building have overtaken the water tower in size, it’s stature is still quite great in Chicago. This photo was taken on a very windy night, which sometimes makes taking HDR images very challenging. In this instance, however, the blurring of the trees’ branches creates a kind of chaotic framework around two of the city’s most treasured landmarks.The Hancock over Water Tower
