One of my favourite areas to stroll around in Chicago is Millennium Park. One of the most imposing and spectacular structures located in the park happens to be the Cloud Gate – also known as ‘the Beam.’ Constructed recently between 2004-2006 it is made of 168 stainless steal plates welded together weighing 110 tonnes. Many consider taking a picture with or beside it an essential photo opportunity. This particular shot was taken at night as I was wandering around the area.
