Rocks, water, fountains and not being gormless

When rocks and looking down turned up on today's photo prompt, I had high hopes for taking some decent shots of the office building's fountain from the vantage point of the upper levels of the parking garage.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that looking forward to seeing whether I get those shots helped me decide that I was well enough to roll back into the office on Wednesday but it was enough of a priority that I did not let myself completely lose daylight before taking the cameras on a walk.

Mind you, had I been super excited (or even less than gormless) about some of the other prompts, I would not have deliberately taken an out of the office, down the stairs, across the patio, up the stairs and back break when I still had daylight to see if I could frame up a shot or two.

And even though there were no rocks involved, I included the look back and down through the railing shot that includes the parking structure elevator.

For context, there's a zoomed shot of the fountain and, of course,  I've included a post-work by night shot of the fountain.  Which one made the cut was a total coin toss.

It may have been a nice shot in daylight but the limited lighting sucked big time.  So those sucky photos not included.
