Winter in Chicago is a hassle. The snow, the parking struggles, and the bitter cold weather all help combine to make our lives relatively miserable during a 4-month span each year, and this year is certainly no different.
But if there’s one thing winter can’t do, it’s hide the unparalleled beauty that our great city displays, no matter what month or season it is, winter included. Last month, a video from photographer Colin Hinkle was uploaded to YouTube that offers a unique, bird’s eye view of some familiar landscapes around town, and it’s some footage that truly will make you think twice about how torturous winter can be.
According to Hinkle, the temperature never exceeded 10 degrees throughout the entire filming process, and although many of us can hardly bear such bitter cold temps, it’s hard to argue just how magical many of these shots are.
