de belles nymphes qui se mettent au frais quand il fait chaud ;)

This looks like a very large fountain; it must be relaxing to sit beside it and listen to sound of the the falling water.

A very dramatic image! The dark shadows highlighting the water spray and splash, against the white marble, all culminating in the shocking blue. Love it!

It must be tough to keep children out of the fountain on a hot summer day.

Oh, I do love the fountain and your photo is superb as always, JM! I can almost feel and hear the water! Delightful! Have a great evening!

VP said...

I always like this kind of fountains and I remember this quite well!

Jacob said...

I'm a maniac for nymphs! ;-)

Just kidding. Playing on words.

Looks like they sat is a bucket of cyan paint and then stuck their hands in it. What's that all about?

Gostei do enquadramento e do jogo de luzes =)

@Virginia and Jacob:
After such a long time, the difference of colours is just a question of being dry or wet. Maybe there is some algae giving a hand too! :-)

Hilda said...

Beautiful! And I love the water droplets that you caught too.

RedPat said...

I thought that someone had thrown paint on the ladies until I read your answer above. Lovely ladies.

Genie said...

A stunning shot with it bubbling water and beautiful colors. Awesome capture.

Jack said...

I love fountains like this. They are feasts for the eyes.

Bob Crowe said...

Such a fine combination of lighting and composition. You caught this in just the right weather and time of day. I like how a fast shutter speed froze the water drops, making them look like jewelry.

Randy said...

Wow that is a lovely photo. I love the colors.

Nicely done with the water droplets.
