Most weekday mornings I exercise with a good friend. The building his office is in has a gym on the top floor and it has a great view of some of Chicago's best parks along the lakefront. One morning while I was exercising and wondering where in the world I was going to find some good dappled light to photograph, I looked up to see some lovely long morning shadows produced by the trees in Grant Park lining Lake Shore Drive. I was lucky it was sunny that following Saturday morning when I drove back downtown with my wide-angle lens.

There is something about tree shadows on snow that I love, but I typically find it hard to capture the feeling that the scene evokes in me. This does the job wonderfully, with lovely skies to boot! Congrats on a great shot, and finish.

Wow, Mark. This is just gorgeous. We're coming to Chicago again in a month - maybe this time we'll have to get out a little farther :) Congratulations on the blue.

My top pick. Wonderfully composed and beautiful light.

I am really drawn into the lines with the trees and having the sun bounce in the snow is really pretty. The streaks in the sky really make this image special

To me, this is my personal ribbon winner
