This weeks entry comes from Joanne of Frutto Della Passione. She lives in Italy and her blog is about Italy and Italian food. Two of my most favorite things in the world.
Joanne submitted two photos for this event. They were both taken in Santa Cristina di Val Gardena in the Alto Adige region of Italy. Here are her photo's with her descriptions below.
"We go skiing in this part of the world every year. The ice fountain shown in the picture is just one of many that are located throughout the village. If you look really carefully you can see a spray of water mist at the top. That's how these fountains are created. The mist is sprayed non stop and freezes as it falls, creating the cascading effect. No two are alike and each one is constantly changing"
"This is a life size, hand carved presepio (nativity). This area is famous for it's woodcarvings and sculptures, and this is an excellent example of the craftsmanship. "
Wonderful photo's Joanne. I love the ice sculpture, but that nativity is breathtaking!! You have truly captured the lost art of hand carving in Italy. Your photos and descriptions remind me why I love Italy so much.
Thanks for participating, Joanne!!
