Big Clouds, Small Skyline

About This Photo Share Purchase This Photo
  • Location: Chicago, Illinois
  • Helicopter: Rotorzen

One of the most interesting elements of photos taken from unusual perspectives–and from a helicopter definitely qualifies as an unusual perspective–is how the size of the subject matter can change. Here is a perfectly normal photo of clouds… with a teeny, tiny Chicago skyline on the horizon.

I feel like this is what Chicago’s skyline would/should look like from DeKalb, not while hovering above Stickney, near Midway Airport. When we landed, I could clearly see the Sears (Willis) Tower from the ground and it looked substantially bigger than this.

On the other hand, maybe those are just some really, really, really large clouds.
