Reflection in the fountain
This photo was taken at 6am in Fitzroy Park in Melbourne in January 2014. The temperature at 6am was already 29 degrees Celsius and the day was forecast to get to 48 degrees. I remembered all of this when I read the topic for this weeks photo challenge. I immediately thought of this photo.
I took the photo of the fountain on my phone while I was out for my morning run. We were heading into the Australian Open tennis later in the day and I remember thinking how cool and serene the water looked, which seemed in stark contrast to what the day would bring.
Not only did the water look cool and inviting but also the park in general, with the sprinklers swishing, the majestic old green shady trees, the cool freshly mowed grass, and of course this gorgeous fountain with its tiled pool. I’m sure it would have been a lovely cool haven from the heat later in the day.
