Le bassin du char d'Apollon


This is Apollo's chariot basin. Along with Latona fountain (which is currently being restored, see it here), it is my favourite fountain in the palace gardens!

Le bassin du char d'Apollon est, avec le bassin de Latone (qui est en cours de restauration, voyez ici), ma fontaine préférée au château !

Doesn't the rushing water overwhelm the sound of his horn. Like rhythm and balance in the last one.

Apollon a l'air de s'en donner à cœur joie. Accepte t'il des compagnons de bain?

I took a number of shots of this magnificent work of art. It's fantastic the way the horses appear to be coming up our of the water.
