Fountain @ Sunset

Visited my birth city last week (for business) but managed to shoot its most famous land mark: The Fountain of Jeddah.

"4000 cubic meters of water remain in the air firming a large mist of colorful haze. This water rushes upwards by means of three giant water pumps at a speed of 320 Km/hr and at a height of 261 meters"!! Making it one of the largest fountains in the world - and it can be seen from more than 10 miles!

Anyway, took more than 300 shots in one long hour of sunset - and got different colors on almost each photo. Here's a few of my favorites - and I have a feeling they're some of my best shots, ever. Hope you like them too.

Would appreciate your comments and critique - as I plan to shoot it again in a few weeks.

Thanks for looking.

I like the way the light travels across the water in the first one.

The fourth has some very good color to it as the light travels across the scene.

Great job.

Thanks a lot MmcFloyd and PhotoNFun. Glad you liked these. It was an unbelievable scene to watch.

And thanks a ton Scott. Your compliments always mean a lot.
And yes, I haven't stopped thinking "Quadro, quadro, quadro" and a bit surprised to come back to no new entries from your end!! ?

I wasn't bugging you, but when I saw that last shot, that was the second thing that came to mind. The first, of course, was what an excellent shot it was.
