Chicago may need to be renamed the foggy city after these incredible images of the tallest buildings bursting through the morning mist.
Shot from the 69th floor of the iconic John Hancock Center the spectacular snaps capture the rare sight of early morning fog rolling in from Lake Michigan shrouding the Windy City.
Photographer John Harrison, 60, captured the breathtaking scenes from his home office in the 98-floor skyscraper which he calls his ‘room with a view’.
John, originally from Connecticut, but who has been living in Chicago since 1995 said: "For me there are a few things which make photography unique.
‘The first is a view nobody else has and the other is being able to capture something unusual people don’t see every day.’This probably doesn’t happen more than four times the year, it’s not like California where it’s foggy every morning so it’s not a common sight here.
‘Not many people see it except for us being high off the ground so to them it looks like a normal cloudy day.’I love being between two cloud levels – it’s fascinating because it’s always different every snap is unique.’I call in my room with a view. I work from home so I have cameras on tripods in three windows ready to go at all times.
‘They’re the start of a bigger project I want to embark on – my dream is to travel the world and sit in high rises and catalogue the world from different rooms with a view.’

Sydney Harbour Bridge will be the centrepiece of a new interactive light installation for Vivid Sydney, extending the Vivid Light Walk across the harbour into the North Sydney precinct for the first time.
Vivid partner, Intel Australia, has teamed up with Sydney-based lightwork innovators 32 Hundred Lighting to create a world-first immersive projection onto the bridge’s western face which will be controlled by the public from an interactive touch screen located on the Luna Park boardwalk.
From 6.00pm to midnight every night, between 24 May and 10 June, spectators will be able to choose the scene and colour of the projection beamed along the upper and lower arches and the road deck of the western face of Sydney Harbour Bridge.
32 Hundred Lighting will design the installation including 100,800 individual programmable LEDs and a state-of-the-art custom-designed software program with an interactive touch screen interface."
Vivid Sydney, the world famous light festival in Sydney, Australia that draws in crowds of more than half a million.
Head to North Sydney to See the City Light up
2013 is the year you can finally give the Sydney Harbour Bridge the paint job it’s always needed without the usual 272,000 litres of paint.
Using the latest interactive lighting technology, you’ll be able to select a section of the bridge to light up, choose your own colour and watch in awe as your illuminated creation brings to life the beautiful grey arch and spans of this iconic piece of Australian architecture. It’s a rare treat to play with something you drive, walk or cycle over on a regular basis!
The result is not just a beautifully lit bridge, stacked with an amazing over 100,800 energy-efficient LED lights. The lighting of the world-famous bridge is another major collaboration designed especially for Vivid Sydney by 32 Hundred Lighting with partner, Intel, who is delighted to turn the Sydney Harbour Bridge into an interactive light experience using the Intel Core processor family. Lighting installation designed by Iain Reed and software design and production by Martin Bevz.
The most unique way to experience the lights of Vivid Sydney is from atop of Luna Park Sydney’s Ferris Wheel.

Take a seat on the colourful LED cubes, enjoy warming winter fare from the food stalls and enjoy street theatre and the best view on earth. The markets will be operating from 6:00pm each Friday and Saturday nights during Vivid and are located under the bridge, en route from Luna Park to the Jeffrey Street Wharf and ferry service.
Man-Made Ski Dubai, the world’s largest snowdome, at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
More than seven years since it opened, Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai remains one of the most unusual attractions in the UAE. Billed the world’s largest Snow Park, it sprawls over 3000 square meters of artificial snow. Temperatures here are set at -1°C (about 45 to 48 degrees lower than the desert heat outside).

the Chillout Cafe in Dubai, the region’s first ice lounge. Honeymooners and other tourists from the parched Gulf countries are making a beeline here to cool off and get closer. The interior decor of Dubai’s Chillout cafe is made entirely of carved ice, with frozen picture frames, ice curtains and frosty seats covered in fur. Owned by UAE’s Sharaf Group, the cafe is lit with multi-colored fluorescent lights and the temperature inside is a frigid 6 degrees, about 40 degrees lower than the torrid desert air outside. For 60 dirhams apiece (US$ 16, INR 895), visitors are allowed to stay for 40 minutes and served one hot drink. They are also kitted out with thermal jackets, boots and fur hats provided by the cafe in a striking similarity to the ice hotels which dot Scandinavia in winter. The newly opened cafe draws about 100 visitors every day.
