The story behind the image

Fountains! I like them. There’s always some activity, and be it just the relentlessly splashing water. And you can cool down by just holding your hands into the basin.

When we visited Rome in Italy in 2005, we just had to see the historical attractions of the city, including the famous Trevi Fountain in the city center. It’s a tourist magnet for sure, but it’s not too bad actually because the tourists distribute across the city. 🙂

In my image I really like the turqouise color of the water and the rather slow exposure time that highlights the splashing water while not entirely blurring it.
