Chicago Buckingham Fountain: click on the image to see more photos
Buckingham Fountain is a Chicago landmark in the center of Grant Park. Dedicated in 1927, it is one of the largest fountains in the world. Built in a rococo wedding cake style and inspired by the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles, it is meant to allegorically represent Lake Michigan. It is operated from April to October, with a periodic water show and evening color light show. During the winter, the fountain is decorated with festival lights.
Spring is a good time to head to Grant Park in Chicago for an afternoon walk. This time of the year the sky is often crystal clear blue and it is still cold so it is not so crowded as in the summer. This gives a lot of opportunities for great panorama pictures. The photograph below was taken on one cold but sunny spring afternoon from the front entrance of John G Shedd Aquarium. The alleys are empty, the barren trees give long interesting shadows and there are still ice pieces on the lake- leftover after long winter months.
