That last picture with Aqua disappearing into the fog is amazing! This tower is quickly turning into a real asset for Chicago.

Have to say I never seen dusk photo of AQUA before. But I love to see aqua at dusk with the light reflecting off it in yellow/gold colour. That should be awesome.

That's a dawn shot, I will try to get a sunset shot the next time I can't avoid being home before sunset.
