Green Mubazzarah by night (3):Fountain atop of the hill

Atop of one of the hills at Green Mubazzarah, there's a medium-sized fountain that accentuates the beauty of the hill. It may not be as spectacular compared to the fountains in downtown Al Ain, but it is pretty enough to make me happy :).

We were about to leave when I asked my buddies if I can take pictures of the fountain and wait for a while. I was clicking for more than 10 minutes when I saw them coming. They followed me :). They were are all panting and complaining. I can almost hear the gush of air coming from them when they stood next to me as their body compensated for the sudden change of oxygen requirement. I've noticed that the temperature at the top of hill was quite cooler and less humid.

Marco was looking at the water pipes and tubes.
If you squint your eyes or take a closer look at the lower right side of this photo, you will see the blue water pipes and tubes.
We stayed there for few more minutes before we finally decided to go home and before we left, I asked Eunice to stand in front of the fountain and pose for me. Eunice recently resigned from her job and she will be flying back to the Philippines anytime next month. We will miss you Eunice.

Word of the day: baad shahar is the Arabic term for next month. Salaam!

  4. I think it's a pretty fountain too. And I like the stones of the plaza too.

    Wishing Eunice good luck in the next phase of her life.

  6. Nice night shots of the fountain. So much better to climb the steps at night rather than in the heat of the day.

  10. Your photos are beautiful Misalyn, it was well worth the climb for these photos. When the fifth photo is enlarged I can see the light reflecting on the water and making it sparkle.
