From my trip to Cleveland this past summer, this photo is of the Fountain of Eternal Life. I had previously posted another version…this one is a large view of the fountain and the city. This location is one wonderful photo opportunity! It was windy this nite, so I had to dodge the fountain sprays. You can see the wet ground below. Some other spots in Cleveland to see are: The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland Browns, Indian and Cavs (Gotta enjoy watching LeBron James), Botanical Garden, Museum of Natural History and the Great Lakes Science Center.
During my next visit..my target location is the Veterans Memorial Bridge. A wonderful bridge with a skyline view in the background. Look for it later this year!
Here is some info on Cleveland: Cleveland is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state. The municipality is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles (100 km) west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location at the head of numerous canalsand railroad lines. With the decline of heavy manufacturing, Cleveland’s businesses have diversified into the service economy, including the financial services, insurance, legal, and healthcare sectors.
