Don't call it light pollution, this is nighttime Chicago bathed in bright, beautiful colors. Returning to the internet with a followup to his popular Windy City Nights video, photographer Max Wilson has pieced together a new five minute long time lapse journey through downtown Chicago dubbed Windy City Nights II. The usual cast of characters star in the short film: the Willis Tower, the John Hancock Center, the Merchandise Mart, along with many others. One thing that is particularly neat is seeing all of the boat and air traffic move about at night. Watching the city from a bird's eye view in fast forward really adds to the notion that the city is a living organism.
