Nicholas J Melas Centennial Fountain
Fountains, waterfalls and other fast-flowing water always fascinate me and inspire me to freeze the water with the shortest possible shutter speed.
I have used 1/4000 sec for picture 1 and 2. The shortest shutter speed of this camera.
With my new camera I even can go up to 1/32000 sec.

The Nicholas J Melas Centennial Fountain is located on the north bank of the Chicago River.
It was dedicated in 1989 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.
Dirk Lohan, grandson of the famous architect Mies van der Rohe, who deeply influenced Chicago's architecture, designed the fountain.
At picture 1 and 2 I used the semi-transparency of the water curtain of the fountain.
Picture 3 gives a more extensive image of the fountain.
