Buckingham Fountain | Grant Park, Chicago | Travel Photo

The impressive and colourful Buckingham Fountain located in Grant Park at night - Chicago, Illinois.  Travel photo from Chicago, USA.

Chicago becomes a magical city at night when the bright lights of the Windy City shine. Its colourful displays can be found all throughout the down-town area. While wandering in Grant Park I noticed the impressive and colourful Buckingham Fountain. This fountain was quite infamously known for its appearance on the opening credits of the comedy sitcom Married with Children. In order to capture the colours and the sense of motion of the water spewing out of the fountain, I put my dSLR on a tripod and set the shutter speed for a time value of longer than what would have been suggested in program mode.  I’ve noticed many of the most prominent travel bloggers take the time to master night photography.  Although it is one of the more difficult genres of photography it’s something I hope to improve on in the near future.
