February Theme Day : Fountains

An ounce of Moresque style is not what one would expect
in the mist of Central Park ,
as an entrance to the Bethesda fountain.
I could say the same about the snow!!
More fountains here:

Une entree de style Mauresque et une vision de neige
pour une des fontaines
les plus connues de Central Park: la Bethesda Fountain.

Dramatic framing for the fountain.

une fontaine admirablement mise en valeur par cette entrée

No, definitely not what I associate with Central Park ... Sicily, perhaps. Beautiful!

J'aurais pu photographier la mienne mais cela n'aurait pas eu le même effet. J'aime bien la première photo.
Toujours de la neige à NY !

The contrast between the two photos is stunning. I think the second is my favorite. Awesome.

Two fabulous photos! That first shows us a stunning entrance - one you'd not know exists from the second photo.

Oh, very, very good images for the theme!

Perfect symmetry in both photos, taken so close to each other, but with such completely different atmosphere!

Eh ben voilà, c'est malin, j'ai envie de sauter dans le premier avion... :-)

Merci, Marie! I've seen pictures of the fountain many times and I've been there in person once...but I've never seen anything like that first shot: What a wonderful composition...great framing and colors! And the 2nd shot is such a delightful contrast to the first!

Breathtaking photographs! Thanks for the experience.

Only you would find these two wonderful perspectives. You inspire me.

What a difference to the shot I took there in summer! :-) That looks awesome under the sun.

j'aime beaucoup la première photo. C'est étonnant de voir une telle entrée et juste en arrière fond de la neige... comme s'il avait neigé au pays des mille et une nuits.

Il y a aussi..There is also...
