Interesting Photo of the Day: Chicago Painted Gold

March 20 was the spring equinox, the first official day of spring in 2014. While it didn’t immediately warm things up around Chicago, it did line up the sun’s rising and setting perfectly with the city’s east-west streets. The proof is in this brilliantly symmetrical image:

Spring equinox is the perfect day to catch the sunset aligned with Chicago’s east/west streets. (Via Imgur. Click for larger image.)

The shot, entitled “Chicagohenge,” was captured by a Chicago photographer with his Nikon D3 and a 70-200mm lens. The beautiful image was snapped with a 1/100 of a second shutter speed, at ISO 200, and f/4, giving viewers the detail of city life below while the brightness of the sun is blotted out by the impeccably-timed L train.
