One of the most naturally stunning scenes I've seen and captured so far... This tree is actually right infront of Lake Michigan, but you can't see it because the tree is on a hill right before the beach. It was a freezing winter day as a storm rolled over the green-gray lake, producing that amazing sky. I love this scene. I'm not from Chicago, but having this image makes me want to move there and see it everyday.
