Font Magica de Montjuic - Barcelona N3887e

You can see different light and sound in foreign places during vacations.


I missed the time in all my previous vacation trips. This is the shot taken at Magic Fountain at Barcelona in 2010.


Wish you a great weekend!


This is repost of an archive shot. The following is the original story.


I did not take a lot of night shots during my trip to Barcelona.


However this is the one that every visitor to Barcelona won't be missing: the Magic Fountain of Montjuic.


It is a combination of colored water, light and music. It starts at 9:30 pm in the summer nights.


When I arrived at the spot, the street, the fountain and the cross-over bridge at the opposite of the fountain are all packed with people.


This is the best position I can get across the street. I have to pray that the buses and trucks did not block my view during my long exposure!


The water shooting into the air was totally blurred upon long exposure. The varying colors were blended into pastel and this is wonderful scene when you see it live!


The building on the right is MNAC (Catalan National Art Museum) Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. I included it in the scene for location identity purpose and I find the building very pretty with its night lighting.
