Wonderful images, Jams. I love the fountains at Versailles. I was lucky enough to be there one year on the day that the fountains were turned on for the season. First there was an outdoor chamber music concert, and then just as the musicians began playing Vivaldi's "La Primavera," all the fountains came on at once! Unforgettable.
