Very nice picture and treatment. Did you use Topaz? If you did, I like the subtle mood it created.

Hello VV. Yes. A minimum minimorum of Topaz. Glad you liked it. A favourable light did the trick.

Edit to add: this water-rain cisterns are called "aljibes", which, i guess, is a word from Arab origins.

Very delicate, Ordo, like an artifact from a fantasy game

What a great post. It was relatively, sacred and admirable! Wishing they preserved it and taking care of it 'coz it's another memorable treasure!
