Barcelona pt2 Magic Fountain

After a busy morning walking around the Parc Guell we are going to the Magic Fountain tonight , there is a music/light display on at 8 pm for an hour on Thursday,Friday and Saturday evenings,  and its Free !
We need to get the D20 bus from just over the road from the hotel and then walk about 8 minutes to get to the fountain.  I Think we need to get their by about 7.30 to give us time to have a look around and find a suitable spot.............Well i got that wrong!

                                                     Its packed already when we get here. 

       Its going to be difficult to find a good spot to photograph from, but will just see what happens.

 Walking up around the top i take a couple of images of the fabulous pool with the pillars in symmetry.

 We walk back down to get a position on the main steps up from the road ,so i can get the buildings in the background of the fountain when the small fountains start up on the avenue .  something to photograph after the main display.

 The sun is getting low now and lighting up the Palace in the background, unfortunately this lovely light only lasts for a fleeting moment.

 The main fountain has started now but there are way to many people in front of us , and the slight breeze is blowing spray right in our faces.

                   We have moved round to the righ hand side and quite close to the fountain wall.
                               It is still light so the colours are not standing out too well.

                                                    Getting better now as dusk approaches.

                                                                     A short video clip

                                          A selection of images taken as the darkness falls .

 A couple of longer exposures to see how the smooth water appears , not sure if they are better than the faster shutter speed shots though.

                                                 A last image, taken on i-phone 7 plus  this one .

That was a fabulous hour watching the lights and music ranging from Coldplay to Clasical and pop.
Time to walk back now, the fountains i wanted to photograph actually stopped the same time as the main fountain finished unfortunately.   passing these old castle style buildings on the way back near to the harbour roundabout .

                                                         Love the lighting on these trees .

                           Monument in the centre of roundabout on the Port Vell harbour front.

                                                     Yes  its a giant smiling Lobster  haha

                        Tommorow we are going to the mountains to Montserrat monastry.
