Chicago Skyline

This is the second skyline photo of Chicago I post, however, this one was taken using the automatic panorama mode of my camera.

It was taken near one of the largest fountains in the world, Buckingham Fountain, located in Grant Park. The background shows the wide variety of highrise architecture from the past century, that Chicago has to offer. Most noticable are the Willis Tower on the left, the tallest tower in Chicago and the second-tallest in the U.S. (1,451-foot/442 m), Trump Tower, the bluish tower to the right of the middle of the fountain, named after businessman and now Republican presidential nomination candidate, Donald Trump, and AON Center, the white tower on the right hand side.

A larger version can be found here.
