Reflecting the beautiful architecture, fountains and ponds are a feature of the palace with the soft sounds of running water said to aid in meditation, water is central to Moorish architecture, and essential to life.

  1. Heya, beautiful lady! Just so you know, it’s cold and raining here in YYC (high of 12 today; but at least it’s no longer freezing at night)… your amazing photos are a wonderful escape. I love how I can just gaze at one of your shots for a time: just really sink into the scene. Time after time, there is just such a feeling of tranquility and beauty: “Yes. This is a place I want to be for a moment.”
    Thanks, Janice.
