Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections


On the general theme of reflections this week…

Water tank 005

After a big storm  blew the top off our water tank in 2010, we had a reflecting pool just outside our bedroom window til the Great Team Effort of Boxing Day 2012, fitted a new roof…(we replaced the tank anyway because the ripping-off of the rook also did quite a bid of damage to the plastic liner so it leaks quite a bit but is handy for car ashing, garden watering, etc…

Raurimu snow 088

I guess this is the second order effect of reflection…everything here looks so bright and clear after a snow fall because the white snow reflects the sunlight and delivers such delicious contrasts…

Waiting for the 471 bus at Gare du Nord in Brussels one morning a couple of month ago….an airliner contrail (you can just make it out as a vertical streak in the centre) was reflected all the way up the glass of both buildings…I couldn’t get the camera settings right to capture as spectacularly as it looked…then the bus came…

Many prototype aircraft meet the criteria for “….shiiineeee…” These are the highly reflective natural metal surfaces of the Fisher P-75 fighter at the National Air Force Museum near Dayton, OH.

It can be particularly reflective in Brussels…either that or there was a window washing blitz…

Purakanui, on the east coat of the South Island of New Zealand…a tidal inlet where the water is mirror smooth most days between tides….
