Ice Fountain

This rain curtain/icicle fountain is found in Yorkville Village Park where the ice sculptures were on display in yesterday's post. It consists of a series of vertical wires running down from that long overhead structure and in summer water runs down the wires like in a soft rain shower. In winter the water is turned on to freeze into long icicles which is even more dramatic than the effect in summer!

That is very dramatic! I wouldn't have thought of doing that and the effect is great.
