  3. Wow, I never knew this fountain was so high; you can really get a sense of it from your photos. This part of Switzerland has been on my places-to-see list. Such a beautiful setting.

  4. I meant to thank you for your comment about the picture in my sidebar. My oldest brother has done business in Sweden for years and went there this year on vacation after he retired. He spent six weeks with friends and did a lot of traveling and picture taking. He loves it there.

  5. Leia, those are some amazing shots. There is a fountain in the Phoenix area that resembles this one. Not sure which is bigger though.

  6. That second shot of the Jet steals my heart.

    I always feel so dumb at all of the things I didn't think of that go with the letters of the alphabet. I'm going to start a list for the next round. J is for Jet (as in water, as in airplane)!!!!!

  7. The way the water falls back reminds me a bit of that very expensive hotel in one of the Asian countries. Very nice.

  8. Can't remember this one (maybe it wasn't there yet, because I was on vacation there in the beginning eighties). But I do remember a very nice boat ride on the Lake of Geneve, as well as the city -which I loved:)

  9. A very interesting series of photos…and I like the way you've shot the fountain from various angle and at different times.

    Geneva is just one more place we haven't been. Sigh!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day!
