Fountain reflection of Chicago skyline along the Chicago River

While walking past a fountain near the Chicago River my eyes were caught by a greenish cast that seemed almost surreal and elusive. The only camera I had with me was my iPhone 5C with which I took several compositions from various angles. It wasn't until I downloaded them onto my computer that I realized what surprising photos they turned out to be. This one I especially like, not only due to the lily pads dancing in mid air, but to the fine detail of the flora stretching up into the clouds above, or below, depending on your point of view.
