Shedd Aquarium Featured in At-a-Glance

This month's At-a-Glance photo contest kept you guessing. The cropped version of this photo didn't give you much to go on, but several of you came up with the correct answer. You'll find the name of this month's winner at our website.

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.

    This is a stunning photo! I'm especially impressed since you were probably white-knuckled in addition to being squished!
    Congratulations!
