Two very strong images, VDP.

The beautiful trees and their reflections appeal to me far more than the man-made Apollo sculpture. Not a criticism, just a preference.

That reflection is spectacular.

Le tout a saisir avec les yeux, un véritable tableau.

I like the wider view of the fountain and reflections the best. multiple artist involved. The creators of the fountain, the sculpture, the gardens, and the photo. All helped by the natural beauty of the scene
