13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The inner courtyard of the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago at dusk

We had just arrived in Chicago and gotten up to our hotel room on the higher floors of the historic Palmer House hotel. At my first glance out the window, I was presented with this scene - a marvelous view of the inner courtyard, revealing the architectural grandeur and symmetry of this amazing building - just as everyone had started turning on their lights, as it was getting dark. The color and structure of the scene were fascinating.
