Chicago Skyline Wallpaper

by Robert D. Hughes

Chicago skyline


I took this photo of the Chicago skyline from the Adler Planetarium in 2004. You're welcome to download this image and set it as your wallpaper. If your screen size exceeds the dimensions of the image, the image will not fill the full width and height of your screen . The wavy lines on some of the buildings are an artifact of resizing and don't show up when the image is viewed at full size (the width and height have been scaled to fit on this page).

NOTE: If you intend to use this image for commercial purposes I require monetary compensation. Please contact Robert D. Hughes if you have any questions.
