Montjuic Fountains: The Magic Show

Montjuic Fountains: The Magic Show [enlarge]

Watching the iridescent colors of Montjuic fountains at dusk can be one of the most relaxing things to do in Barcelona. However, before you go, make sure you know if some important event is going on since it is possible that the fountains are dry when you get there. On this occasion, I was invited to visit Sonimagfoto, a photography related event held in Barcelona Fair venues (my thanks to Barcelona Photobloggers guys who were exhibitors promoting Barcelona bloggers' community). On walking out of the exhibition area I stumbled upon the beauty of the fountains with Palau de la Merce and MNAC in the background. My first thought was "hey there's water in the fountain" then I stood in the middle of the avenue where there's this narrow traffic sign painted on the road about to steps wide and took some shots. It's a little bit noisy but worth showing.

    That an amazing looking fountain. It looks like the display attracts quite a large crowd.

  11. They say that Barcelona is a really beautiful city...and judging from your blog...I can see why!!! Greetings from TORUŃ DAILY PHOTO here in Poland!

  12. That's a great photo - bet it is relaxing to watch the colorful water fountain display. It makes me think of the dancing water fountains outside the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

  13. Uma excelente fotografia.

    Eu vi o espectáculo já noite fechada, em Novembro, só se pode dizer fabuloso.
