I love Chicago, even though I’ve never been to the city. It’s on my list of places I need to visit at least once. I’ve seen and heard so many good things about it. Videos like these really make me just want to hop on Southwest.com and book a flight there this weekend. Thanks to Philip Bloom, who shot a 3 and a half hour timelapse video on board a boat going along Lake Michigan and through the gorgeous Chicago canals. The video really shows the beauty of Chicago.

Yesterday, for my last night in Chicago I was fortunate enough to be around to be part of the  2nd annual Zacuto boat trip. Where they thank their staff by taking them on a boat trip along Lake Michigan and through the canals of Chicago. Naturally I timelapsed the whole thing using my Canon 60D with the Tokina 11-16mm at the 11mm end. Secured to the boat with the heavy duty gorillapod, AV mode due to the light changing, interval 3 seconds. daylight white balance, large Jpegs as usual, ISO 320 and wide open.

According to Philip, he ran into a small technical issue after shooting the video, but luckily, Data Rescue 3 software allowed him to recover the stills. You can read his full post here.

Enjoy the video below:
