"The fountain" Belvedere Palace & Gardens Tip by iandsmith

Belvedere Palace & Gardens, Vienna: 183 reviews and 360 photos

 
 

The wintry sky hung like a pall over the scene, lending atmosphere to the starkness of a fountain in winter. No water moving. Icicles hanging here and there. A thaw, however slight, reflecting the sun's yellow pallor in a small pool.
It was gloom personified and I looked on with a fascination that locals would have found hard to uderstand.
As the atmosphere enveloped me I revelled in it. A moody day in a classic garden. Wonderful.
