Our new monthly photo series, Capturing Chicago, compiled by Photo Editor Martha Williams, highlights the work of local photographers who capture the beauty of Chicago and its surrounding areas in compelling and striking ways.

We suffered a brutal winter and instead of a perfect summer, we got derechos, epic fog and more rain than San Francisco. But Chicagoans really know how to take advantage of the few warm months we do have. With only a few weeks left, we turned to Instagram to see how photographers captured our fleeting summer so far. Take a look and then run outside to soak up enough vitamin D to last you till next summer.
