Theme Day - Fountains

 
Posted by Picasa


I have featured this fountain on my blog before, but since I think it is the most beautiful fountain in town, I am showing it again for Theme Day. This is the Florida Heritage Fountain located downtown on the west front of the Florida Capitol and facing the Florida Supreme Court. The dolphin sculpture within the fountain is called "Stormsong". The first day of the month is Theme Day for the City Daily Photo community.

Your are right, Lois, this is a beautiful fountain and very unusual. I love the name "Stormsong" - it just sounds so right. Thank you for showing this, I;ve not seen anything like it before.

We had similiar ideas today -- but, you have many, many more leaping dolphins. Nice shot. Looks like a lovely spot to sit and enjoy listening to the fountain and admiring the artwork.

More dolphins. Somehow they makes this fountain very "Floridian". :)

I think this is one of the most beautiful fountains in all of Florida, if not the most beautiful. Love the way you composed this. Great lighting. Dramatic!

I was also going to say: From ducks to dolphins...you're on a roll!

Have a wonderful day!
