Photographer's Note

Continuing my serie from my last short trip to Trikala perfecture for the Orthodox Easter, I'm posting a photo from a fountain, built with the traditional way.

I don't know how old this fountain is, but I like the how the bright mountain sun lighting it's rocks.

Unfortunately this fountain had lack of water. I supose from the the few snows that this place had during the winter. But, as I said, I like it's architecture.

Some detauls about fountains:
A traditional fountain is an arrangement where water issues from a source (Latin fons), fills a basin of some kind, and is drained away. Fountains may be wall fountains or free-standing. In fountains sheets of water may flow over varied surfaces of stone, concrete or metal. Basins may overflow from one into another, or the overflow may imitate a natural cascade. Many fountains are located in small, artificial ornamental ponds, basins and formal garden pools, and often they include sculpture.

One of the most common features of a fountain, if there is enough pressure, is a jet or multiple jets, where water is forced into the air under pressure to some height. A famous example of such a modern fountain rises from the surface of Lake Geneva.

I convert this photo in sepia tones. I wanted to give a boost of details about the rocky surface.

Hope you like it!
Have a nice weekend
