Photobombed by a seagull

This detail of a water feature in Sydney could stand on its own as an abstract or geometric image, but the curious seagull brings life to it (quite literally).

Fountain

This fountain, with its abstract design, is to be found in the formal landscaped gardens of Chateau Villandry, in France’s Loire Valley.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid

With an exposure of only 1/2000 of a second, this detail of a water feature in Sydney hardly looks liquid at all.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 35 – From Above

This week’s theme set by The Girl That Dreams Awake is ‘From Above’. This can often provide an interesting and unusual perspective when compared with the more conventional ‘straight ahead’ view.

This particular example is looking down from a fifth-floor balcony onto a water feature in the foyer of a nautically-themed hotel in Dubai.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Falling Water

All along the Corniche in Abu Dhabi runs a park. There are play areas and plenty of items of architectural interest, including this water feature. I particularly like the contrast between the rigid geometry of the mosaic and the concrete on the one hand and the running (falling) water on the other.

It being Abu Dhabi, naturally enough the sun was shining, so the light, shade and shadow add further interest to the composition.
