Sunday a week ago a friend showed me a wonderful picture of a couple in front of a fountain.  The couple, obviously young and in love, were silhouetted against the glowing water of the fountain.  It was such a good photo that it kept me awake that night.  That photo was the inspiration for this scene.

And I could not have made it happen without Abby.  Photos like this are always team work and involve the efforts of the dancer and photographer in equal measure.  But for this photo we also had to consider the pulsating water jets in the fountain and the rapidly fading daylight.

Dang I love this stuff!
