Explore the Reflection

If you haven't been to the Windy City to see Millennium Park and this 110-ton elliptical sculpture, widely referred to as The Bean, then take a few minutes to explore the city's skyline with this wonderful reflection.  Officially, this enormous structure, by British artist Anish Kapoor is titled Cloud Gate and measures 66 feet long by 33 feet high.  In addition, a 12-foot high arch on the underside acts as a "gate" to the concave design and allows visitors to touch the surface.  According to the City of Chicago website, the inspiration for this design came from liquid mercury.  Enjoy the view.
