Volcano Fountain


There are several of these fountains at Parque das Nações, Lisbon, and they usually 'explode' from time to time, but I waited for a couple of minutes and nothing happened, the water just kept running down the wall.

I bet it was making a soothing sound of rushing water.

This kind of fountain is very nice, but often mischievous...

I like this fountain and I like the way you composed this. The sound must be like music.

Interesting design. The first fountain I have seen like that. Like the layout (I mean, composition) of your shot. Super!

I bet it explodes as soon as you turned your back to it!

Brilliant. Perhaps a couple of minutes wasn't enough? :-)

I like how the water is bouncing down the sides - seems happy!

It is a very special fountain. It's a shame you did not see it in full swing.

I bet those fountains at dusk with a slow shutter would look stunning. Not this photo isn't anyway. Excellent job.

very cool fountain!

This looks fine in its "normal" mode. Who knows what risks there might be to your camera if there's a real explosion of water?!

Randy said...

I love it!

Jack said...

It is a nice photograph, but I imagine that it exploded into a brilliant display as soon as you departed. That is the way of life!

I remember the kids had great fun with these fountains, getting all wet when they exploded!

That could be scary if you were walking by and all of a sudden heard "Kaboom!" and found yourself drenched with water. :)

I bet it exploded as soon as you left JM :)

Very unique, beautiful!

Hilda said...

Even without the "explosion," this is still a fascinating fountain. But I do hope you catch the explosion one of these days.

God bless you!
