No the fountain shot can be included anytime - then the first to do so gets to choose the next object or landmark to capture.  David's idea, not mine

No doubt you do.  

The largest fountain in the world measures 7,327 m² and was achieved by Nakheel, in Dubai, UAE on 22 October 2020.   The water fountain is named “The Palm Fountain” and is designed to show the harmony between the universe and the earth.

I've seen that video, or something similar, before.  It's most spectacular.

Looks like it should be a hotel/spa with a pond attached,  theres even a sign in there but the quality isn't good enough to recognise it.      Please tell me its not London.

It had a London vibe about it.      Any other angles of it ?

No.   Ive come up short,   unless something grabs me latter,    Looking at the forecast winds are coming in with high tide so I may have a look then when I get back from delivering the TV stand and some shopping.

If I post up a close-up of the fountain, Goggle Lens identifies the location easily.  If you can't figure it out later I'll post that pic as a reveal

None of those. Draw a line between Cambridge and Oxford. About halfway between the two.

I think you must mean Great LINFORD Manor Park?   
That's quite close
10Kms south of there.  As you're nearest so far, here is a pictorial clue that Google Lens will recognise.

Managed one flight between showers this afternoon. Nothing spectacular.
Depp has got within 10Kms of the Where am I?  So I've posted a pic to help him home in.

I had a little flight at high tide and the water was very busy,   after a few chores I was going to check out something and came out of the workshop only to get rained on,  so called it a day.  

Im surprised Depp is beating me,  but you cant always guess them.

Thats funny,  I kept coming back to Manor Park but had ruled it out.
