photoblog image Cloud Gate

Cloud Gate

One of the most spectacular sights in Chicago is Cloud Gate. Loved by locals and tourists alike this great big chrome bean in Millennium Park provides an incredible multi-directional view of the Chicago Skyline, the Park and, when there are clouds, the clouds.

Located only blocks from Chicago's historic downtown, known as The Loop, the views of the skyline are incredible. Inspired by the old buildings and the new park I decided to make this photo part colour, part monochrome. I took this photo with a polarizer on my camera which created an incredible dark blue effect in the Gate.

If you think it looks cool in the photo you'll have to check it out in real life!

My son was in Chicago a month ago and did not see it . I was disappointed. I would have made a special trip to see it.
