Default Fountain Hills

I went to Fountain Hills AZ today and was thrown back by the beauty of this fountain. Anyway, I need some feed back... I do plan on taking another trip in the near future to take pictures...I don't think this trip was good enough, but here is a picture so you can see. Let me know what I could do better.

Perhaps at a different hour or take pictures from a different area of the lake/park.
Anyway, let me know what you think

Thanks,

Hector

Looks like a fascinating & photogenic place! Your photo really captures the power of the water well!
Wonder how it would look around dusk or dawn, with lower lighting, or perhaps right after a storm with the sun just coming out from clouds...

Interesting shot ... I'd like to see you get a full reflection though

That's quite a fountain, Hector!
I agree, it would be nice if you had the full reflection but, then you would need a bigger lake.

@Mole, I think I'm gonna go around dusk, because the fountain doesn't go off until 9 A.M. Although, I wish I could capture during the dawn hours.

@Frogfish, I may be able to get the full reflection shot if I stand at a different location.

@GW, It is a great fountain. Just sitting there and waiting for the top of the hour at 107 degree weather made it all worth it!

@Ronny Thanks!
