The Apology After The Storm

We had a stormy, and sometimes frightening evening in Chicago, with tornado warnings and high winds. As the turbulent weather blew away from the city out over Lake Michigan further points east, the remnants of the storm produced a magnificent sunset. Golden light, to which my camera could not do justice, bathed the north side of Chicago in almost apologetic tones and hues. These photos were taken between 8:30 - 8:45 PM, CDT, about two hours after the tornado warnings were cancelled for Chicago. Click them to enlarge. Photos (c) 2010 T.H.Mannis All Rights Reserved
