Buckingham Fountain

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 July 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Buckingham Fountain spotted in Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois.

The fountain shoots water so high into the sky that winds off Lake Michigan can carry the water "spray" west to Columbus Drive and Congress Parkway.

Photo captured July 20, 2012.
