    Superb pic. I once did something similar shortly after my dad's death - made me realise I could feel joy and laugh again

    I'm guessing you might not have needed the water fountains within a few minutes of taking this photos - did the heavens open?

    No surprisingly they didn't open over Nice Rosie, but they created mayhem in Roquefort and other villages in the hills. They and the accompanying thunder were responsible for frying our internet connection! It was very bizarre weather. See my reply to Lou's Lake Views above.

    Bizarre indeed. Simon was house sitting at friends a week or so ago - there was a massive crack of thunder and flash of lightening right overhead with no pre-warning leading to one fried livebox! Interestingly we think we saw the lightening from here - he was about 40mins drive away and we saw a single large lightening fork at the right time and in his direction.

    Surreal. A watery version of Last Summer in Marienbad.

    Looks perfect for a summers day - shivering at the thought from a chilly Melbourne winter!

    Great shot. That looks like so much fun but those incoming clouds don't!

  • Guest
    Phoebe lundi, 04 août 2014

    The clouds were releasing tons of hail over my village in the hills but as far as I know didn't dump on Nice. We certainly managed to miss getting wet, though we returned home to a garden covered in ice (in thesouth of France in July!) and internet cut!

    This looks like a good way to cool off. We did a similar thing on a much smaller scale on the Southbank in London last week ;)
