When traveling along Michigan’s Interstate-196, heading East from Holland, you will see trees. Lots and lots of trees. About a mile or so outside of Grand Rapids, however, those trees open to reveal an amazing view of the City On the Grand. The first time I witnessed this breathtaking view of Grand Rapids, I knew that it had to be photographed. Luckily, the unseasonably warm and snowless weather we in Michigan have enjoyed, thus far, made catching this shot possible. So, here it is – Grand Rapids, Michigan’s skyline at dusk when the city lights and the sky are balanced… from my favorite perspective of the city. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do:

The weather was not what I would call “perfect”, but the rain did hold off long enough for a quick walk-around Chicago’s Loop to take some artistic photos of the skyline, as well as the inner-city infrastructure that adds to Chicago’s atmosphere. Among those photos, these are my favorites. Remember, all photos are available as prints. If interested, feel free to contact me, or visit the Print Price List.
In my previous post, I shared a number of shots that I took while walking around Grand Rapids, Michigan with my 10-year-old daughter. Yesterday (Friday 11 March, 2011), my daughter and I had another Grand Rapids walkabout. This time, at night. Grand Rapids is a beautiful city. Even more so, at night.
