From Every Angle

Aranjuez fuente narciso perroFountain of Narcissus

One day Narcissus was walking in the woods when Echo, an Oread (mountain nymph) saw him, fell deeply in love, and followed him. Narcissus sensed he was being followed and shouted “Who’s there?”. Echo repeated “Who’s there?”. She eventually revealed her identity and attempted to embrace him. He stepped away and told her to leave him alone. She was heartbroken and spent the rest of her life in lonely glens until nothing but an echo sound remained of her. Nemesis, the goddess of revenge, learned of this story and decided to punish Narcissus. She lured him to a pool where he saw his own reflection. He didn’t realize it was only an image and fell in love with it. He eventually realized that his love could not be addressed and committed suicide.

The Fountain of Narcissus is in Aranjuez (Madrid) inside of the ” Garden of the Prince “.

  1. Amazing photos – love how you have captured so many angles with water, reflection so the viewer can get a true sense of the statutes. The photo with the water cascading down and the statute’s arm out makes me want to jump up there and join in to have the water wash away anything that I do not want to hold any longer. Agree that those under look like they are ducking to get out of the spray of the water. Very nice shots!
