STC Chicago member Mike Tillmans donated the photo. He tells us it wasn't the easiest shot to get:
Despite my fear of heights, or because of it, my anniversary present this year was a helicopter ride over Chicago. This is a shot of the Shedd Aquarium as we were flying north along Lake Michigan at about 1200 feet. The picture is more remarkable if you consider it was a small (4-seat) helicopter with no doors, so I was wedged in the back seat with a 15 degree field of vision, holding on to a support and trying to take pictures.
