This weathervane is on top a carousel in the park. The carousel is closed up for the winter, and only the weathervane horse remains out-of-doors to face the wintry weather ahead.

What a beautiful weathervane, Marilyn! It sure looks pretty on the red roof. Greetings, Anne

Very beautiful photo, Marilyn !There is a cock everywhere instead of the horse at us :-) Best regards, Tamás

So sad that everything will be closed for the Winter,Marilyn.At last the weathervane horse will continue to gallop in the wind.Ciao Daniela

Thank you, Anne, Tamás, and Daniela. Most of our weathervanes have cocks, too. But the carousel has wooden horses for the children to ride, and I suppose that's why there's a horse on top, too. There is a hill near the carousel; maybe the children will come and slide down it when there's snow, instead of riding the carousel.

To the person who suggested a slight change in location, thank you for your interest. Panoramio photos are, however, to be mapped at the location of the photographer, not the location of the subject of the photo. (Obviously I was not standing on top the carousel!)

how fitting it should be atop a carousel, thx for sharing :o)

Thanks, Rom@nce. I'd hoped to get a photo of the whole carousel, but it is only open for a limited season and we were away. Maybe next year!
