A petrifying fountain

Water always finds a way! It seeps into the ground, it moves, it erodes and carves. When the rocks are too hard, the water turns away and looks for an easier way. By its actions, the water erodes rocks and dissolved minerals and carries them away in an anarchic movement. Enriched with gypsum and limestone, water can be in the open here. The limestone will bring forward and trap all kinds of elements (leaves, pines, dead branches).)
