I can't even remember the last time I was along the Chicago Lakefront to watch the sun rise. This was taken during the 2009 McDonald'sŪ L.A.T.E. Ride, which is an all night bicycle ride in the city from 1:30am-6:00am. It's hard to tell, but I was getting swarmed by gnats while holding my bike up for this photo :)

Not much fun about the gnats Archie, but a cool picture nonetheless.

Archie this one is awesome... I don't see any noise at all! I love how you got the horizon nice and flat... I miss my 10.5... the 16 ain't nothing like it!
