F is for Fountain

Today I show you yet another spot on the grounds of Sitio Remedios, the resort I've featured a number of times in the past weeks (here, here and here).

Looking out from the little chapel, you see this fabulous fountain with a statue of Saint Michael the Archangel in the classical pose of showing Satan who's boss.

 Ilocos, 2010

I thought it looked fantastic at night all lit up, too.


This post joins the good folks playing along at ABC Wednesday where the letter today is F, as well as with Watery Wednesday.

I'm always praying in some St. Michael Church because there are lots of Churches in Europe called St. Michael. :)
But it's the first time that I see a fountain like that.
This fountain is wonderful, I love the angle in your second shot, and the lights as well!

I have not seen a fountain with St. Michael statue. I also pray for his intercession on us. I like the second photo. Thanks for sharing!

Never pit a devil against an archangel, it will never win.

A statue that means business. It must be quite ominous at night.

Greetings from Finland. This blog is fun to explore, through other countries, people, culture and nature. Come see Teuvo pictures on my blog. And tell all your friends, why should he go Teuvo pictures on my blog. That is why you get your country's flag to rise above the pictures to Teuvon images blog flag collection, a lovely end of February, Teuvo Vehkalahti Finland

Next time, you go to Singapore, go to Sun Tec city. They have a fountain of fortune.

I am ashame to admit that I don't wash my car. Once in a blue moon, my husband can't tolerate it, and he cleans it. Actually from a lazy person's point of view my car is not that dirty. i drive it to and back from School. I don't eat or drink anything in the car. Our city air is quite clean, ad we have a lot of rain which cleans my car.

Wonderful capture. I can't wait until the water starts flowing again here. Everything is still frozen.

That's a great fountain. Hope you're having a great WW!

I like the traditional top and somewhat modern looking bottom on the fountain.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Lovely statutes and fountains -- I think you need to submit your posts to the resort for their advertising -- I'd go there if I could ;>)

Ann said...

I wanted to comment on your header photo, not a blade of green grass. I don't like to live there,

Great image at the bottom!
