PhotoHunt: Ripples

Water is an architectural element that brought cool sensory pleasure to the palace and gardens of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. Here you can see Ripples in one of the many soothing water fountains in the General Life Gardens.

Want to hear it too . . . (More to come!)

See more PhotoHunters HERE!


  1. Hi Kathy, this is so beautiful. Amazing how relaxing and restoring ripples like this are! And throw in the amazing setting for this pool, it's perfect.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments. I so agree that it is pretty relaxing to have these beautiful ripples of water around an amazing setting like the Alhambra palaces and gardens. Sweet!

    Have a great weekend too!

  3. I'm so glad to see you selected a photo from your trip to Spain. When I was looking for my PH photo last night, I almost picked a photo from the Alcazar in Seville but it got voted down by the Venice one. I remember the fountains in the Alhambra. Your photo and cool video brought back many sweet memories. Love how clear you captured the sound of water falling in the fountain. Great choice, Kathy!

    Have a great weekend. I hope the weather has cooled down a bit for you. We got a big monsoon storm last night and it is supposed to be below 100 today and tomorrow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. I love the sound of the fountain. That would make a perfect tape to fall to sleep with. Your picture of the Alhambra is beautiful also. It is definitely a place of wonderful fountains.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. Kathy, what a lovely shot! I love the fountain, it looks amazing!

  6. Great choice for ripples. Love the added audio :) Have a great weekend!

  7. Beautiful! Seems like a nice "go to" place for some peaceful alone time.

  8. Hi Everyone, thank you so much for your comments. I thought there were a lot of cool photos and unique takes on this week's theme and it was fun to see everyone's photos.

    Maria, when I saw the theme I had two ideas too. One local shot from here and Spain. Well, there was no contest which photo would stand out! :) Alcazar was beautiful in Seville, but I can see how it got out voted seeing that the competition was Venice! That was a beautiful shot! I also love the sounds that water makes. Very calming effect.

    Have a great weekend too! It was cool this past week, but it is a little warmer today. As soon as I got home on went the AC. Too bad about the mansoon, but glad that your temps will hopefully dip below 100. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too.

    Marta, I love the sounds that water makes too. There's something relaxing about it. And so I can certainly see why thee were so many around the Palace and gardens. It seems that everywhere I turned there was water.

    Candi, glad you liked the shot. There were so many beautiful fountains there it was hard to select just one.

    Girasoli, glad you liked my photo and the accompanying audio. It was fun recreating the experience as much as I could. :)

    Eden, yes you are right. In fact, I made sure to relax a bit (and not rush through) so I could enjoy the ambience! It was is a very cool and relaxing place to be for sure.

    Thanks again everyone for your comments. Another fun theme! Surprise will be pretty interesting and fun too! :)

  9. Hi Kathy: Lovely photo - great idea to include the sound of these fountains. The mystic of this place will forever be a pleasant memory for me. Thanks for the reminder, menehune

  10. Beautiful shot.

    One of these days I shall have to get there.

    Havbe a wonderful weekend.

  11. Hi Menehune, I hear you! I too will remember the mystic of the Alhambra for as long as I live. I'm glad my post brought back some fond memories for you.

    Hi Jerry, glad you liked my photo. I hope you do get to visit there someday too. I think you will love it!

    Thanks so much for your comments. Have a wonderful Sunday evening!
