Fabulous skyline capture and with the gorgeous fountain that you have so well displayed in this extraordinary capture, Christine, I do believe that Hallmark might hire you very soon! This is definitely Nat Geo material, and a truly gorgeous viewing experience! Got the big "Elvis" fave and vote and tweet and FB and g+1 on this masterpiece of capture and presentation of this glorious scenery!

Christine Till replied:

Randy, I don't know what to say. You're my biggest fan. Thank you so much for that.

Description

Christine Till
Grant Park - Chicago's Front yard - is home to the Buckingham Fountain, designed to serve as the park's formal focal point without obstructing the views of the Lake Michigan. Kate Sturges Buckingham (1858-1937) dedicated the structure to the people of Chicago in 1927 in memory of her late brother, Clarence, donating one million dollars for the Fountain.
Inspired by the Latona Basin at the Versailles Palace near Paris, the structure is composed of four basins clad in elaborately carved granite and pink Georgia marble. The Buckingham Fountain, however, is twice the size and re-circulates approximately three times more water than its French counterpart.
The massive lower basin features four sets of Art Deco style sea horses representing the four states that border Lake Michigan. The fountain's sculptural elements garnered sculptor Marcel Loyau the Prix National at the 1927 Paris Salon.
