Acqua Potabile

By ChazB      
Thank you to everyone who voted and commented on my last upload of Varenna (a pretty little town on Lake Como with a lovely harbour) and especially to WhiteRose1 for the User Award!! This shot is also from Lake Como, but this time Bellagio, the town where we were staying. The steep and narrow pebbled streets lead up the hillside in Bellagio and half way up one of these, I spotted this fountain for "drinking water". I really liked the ivy growing around it and the textures of the stone wall - it feels a bit magical to me! As it's a bit different to the shots I normally post, I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking! Comments are very welcome Smile

The contrast between the ivy and the stone is excellent, and the ivy leaves are so well defined. Not sure I'd want to 'potable'the water though Tongue
