Chicago's Grant Park at Dusk, Early Fall 2004

The main attraction of the park is the Buckingham Fountain, one of the world's largest and the city's most popular attraction. The fountain runs from 10 AM to 11 PM daily and operates from late spring to late fall. Every hour on the hour for 20 minutes, the fountain produces a major water display and the center jet shoots 150 feet into the air. Beginning at dusk, every hour on the hour for 20 minutes the fountain's major water display is accompanied by a major light and music display. The final display of the evening begins at 10:00 p.m.

Philanthrophist Kate Buckingham dedicated the structure to the people of Chicago in 1927 in memory of her late brother, Clarence. At the time, she also established a $300,000 trust fund to ensure that the taxpayers would never have to cover all of the repair and upkeep costs associated with the fountain.

Cropped the top and bottom to achieve a panoramic effect, then curves and USM.
