Fountain series June

Here’s a new challenge I discovered, with a different theme each month, and I believe all are to do with fountains. June’s theme is unusual details or unusual fountains. You can find fountains in most places, small and large. fountains can commemorate, they can be decorative, they can be very artistic, whether classical or modern. I’ve taken pictures of lots of fountains in places I’ve visited though most wouldn’t be classified as unusual.

In Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, UK, The gardens has an area called the Serpentine where trimmed hedges lead you through a series of fountains whose mechanics are based on physics. Here are a few of those fountains.
