Winter Has Rarely Looked More Beautiful Than In This Drone Video Of Frozen Chicago

Drone Video Of Frozen Chicago Will Take Your Breath Away

Thanks to last year’s historic polar vortex conditions, we already know that Chicago is eerily beautiful from above during the winter -- but now we have video proof.

On Sunday, photographer Colin Hinkle released a compilation of footage offering a bird’s eye view of a very-frigid Windy City, via a GoPro camera strapped to a DJI Phantom 2 drone.

The video was shot over the course of two weeks in January, according to its YouTube description, and features shots of the city that are both familiar — the downtown skyline, CTA trains, Lake Michigan and the Chicago River — and less so, particularly the brand-new Maggie Daley Park.

According to Hinkle, the mercury never reached above 10 degrees throughout the entire filming period.

“Enjoy the beauty of a frigid Chicago from your warmth of your living room,” the description reads.
