ABC Wednesday - F is for Fountain


I've shown you fountains here before, such as the one in Qaqortoq, but this is nearer home in Vernon Park at Stockport. This is from the New Bridge Street entrance on a wintry day with a bright sun sparkling behind the trees.


The fountain was flowing although most its collection pond was frozen over. In the background you can see the bench I showed you a closer view of last month.

To find more "F" posts this week, visit ABC Wednesday.

  8. Not one fountain in Ramsey, unless you count the overflow pipe into the river. I have to be a sheep and agree to the first one for all the above reasons as the eyecatcher.

  11. I've always felt there was something magical about fountains - all of them. I frequently make a fanciful fountain to use indoors... Your photos are, as usual, superb with fascinating detail.

  19. Excellent photos, Gerald. It pleases me to see fountains running in the winter time; over here, folks generally shut them down and drain them, eliminating the major interest at the site.
