Fontana delle Tartarughe 0633


Bronze boys and dolphins were sculpted by Taddeo Landini.
The creator of the tortoises is unremembered.
The Turtle Fountain sparkles after a thorough cleaning to remove
years of mineral stains and crust left by the water passing through it.

Canon PowerShot A710IS
1/800s f/4.0 at 10.0mm full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Forgot to say I love all that stuff against the orange building with its irregular columnar edge there.

What a neat shot. I like the stone, the sculpture (graceful and so realistic) plus the water beads
coming down too.

Beautiful detail. Love the hand on the turtle.
