A little bit of artistic licence! An art work of swallows diving towards the fountain.

An artwork by Joel Walker made in bronze and steel."Swallows taking flight together".

I have taken out the stand that was holding them in place.
Just a bit of fun!

Thanks for looking.

I was excited to see the thumbnail, I was hoping the swallows were real. They are hard to photograph in flight, I managed a couple of shots but not very good. Good capture of this fountain with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Eye catching art work, very creative indeed.
Cool spray,......can hear and feel it from here.


Hi Jean

A very nice capture. At first I thought the birds were real, but then realised.... You did an excellent job in removing the stand. The shutter speed hasn't frozen the water and this has given the photo life. I like it.

Hi Jean,
This is a fun image, because it tricks the viewer just for a moment. I though in the first seconds that you had managed an impossible capture :)
Upon realizing the swallows aren't real I read you note, and I think this is very well done, I can't tell where the stand might have been. It would be nice to see the original for comparison.
This is good fun:)

Hello Jean

A fine job indeed with the pp work. I like it. Had me fooled at first. Nice
