CDP Theme Day - Fountains


Boy the first of the month rolls around quickly. I ALMOST let this theme day get past me.  Luckily my friend Terry and I went roaming around downtown last weekend and I caught this photo of the fountain in the center of Linn Park backlit with the late afternoon sun.

As many of you know, the theme for the first day of every month is voted on by the 1000's of CDPB around the world.  You can click on the link below and see their creative interpretations of this month's theme!

Now that's what you call a fountain. I laughed at Bibi's comment and she's so right. Rather like shaggy ghosts. That's a big force of water there.

Ooh, I like the light behind the water! Nice!

Wonderful backlighting and bright blue sky which make the water really stand out.

Une fontaine en dentelles!

That's a lot of water. I wonder if it flows like that all the time, or just spurts.

Kate said...

Don't you love living in a place where the fountains can run year-round? This is lovely and glad that you and Terry were there to capture it!

Bisous,

Ken Mac's comment made me laugh out loud! Nice shot.

That's a lot of water! Hope it doesn't get cold enough to freeze this one!!

Hilda said...

Lush!

Not a word I would normally use to describe a fountain, but it was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw your photo. Fantastic back-lighting too!

Leif Hagen said...

A water fountain extraordinaire! Lovely snap with the blue sky and backlighting! Tres bien fait, Madame V!

Virginia I think this is the most powerful, dynamic, and possibly the best fountain photo I have seen on this theme day. JUST BRILLIANT !
