Zig Zag : Weekly Photo Challenge

Water feature

On a trip to a garden in Dumfries this water feature reminded me of a programme I watched early one morning about the renaissance gardens of Italy. The gardens were really grand mostly originating from commissions by members of the Catholic church. The programme was Monty Dons Italian Gardens which is informative and a feast for the eyes!

Here I really like the way the water fountain has been carved into the steep hill and the clean lines.
