Time Lapse Video Shows Magic Of Chicago's Skyline At Night, With Fireworks

The videographer behind some of our favorite time lapse videos showcasing Chicago's seasons and skyline is back with another one: Max Wilson recently released a new time lapse focused on the city's nighttime lights—including some epic fireworks shots.

The video, "Windy City Nights III," shows off Chicago's downtown skyline, fireworks over the lake, Michigan Avenue and more. As Wilson wrote of the video on Vimeo, the video included five years-worth of work, with a combination of favorite shots from past projects and newer, more recent shots.

"It’s a culmination of photography work in Chicago at night for the past 5 years," he wrote. "My focus has always been on the city skyline and the architecture of the buildings. I really enjoy night time photography because it lends itself well to the timelapse technique. With all the movement and lights at night, it really is something special. You can really see the pulse of Chicago at night."
