Photo: Horses Running through the Water

The flowers that I showed in yesterday's photo obscured the fact that these horses are galloping through a fountain in front of the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort's front entrance. For visitors arriving from cold weather in the East or Midwest in the winter, this statue greets visitors with a reminder that they are indeed now out West.

You can almost feel the motion and energy of these horses just by looking at the statute. A magnificent combination of power and grace.

This week we are showing photos of the Italian village of Cernobbi on the shores of Lake Como on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Terrific! You really get a sense of motion from the statues. I really like the water element that was incorporated too.
