Detail from
King Neptune Sculpture/Fountain
at Malaga Cove, Palos Verdes Estates, California

Created by an unknown artist in the 17th century as a copy of the original 16th century bronze fountain by Giambologna, the sculpture was imported from Italy by the collector, Arnoldo Adolfo di Segni in the late 1920s, purchased from him by the Palos Verdes Project and dedicated in Malaga Plaza on February 16, 1930. The sculpture was restored and rededicated in 1969 and 1999.

    I love the soft blue sky as the background on this image. Beautifully serene capture!

  • This is my favorite of the bunch—I just really liked the catch of light from the right side. Thanks so much for the comments!

    I like the soft tones too, and the composition is perfect in this shot.

  • Thank you very much! I didn’t even notice the classic diagonals in the comp when I shot it.
