Vertigo! When I was a little girl, I liked to stay against a building and put my head backward: I had the feeling that not the clouds, but the building, was moving! That's the same with your picture!
Fantastic!

Reader Wil said...

This is one of the best reflections I ever saw! Thanks James for hosting this meme.

Pat said...

I LOVE this! Great angle! It really gives this dizzy blond something to get dizzy about! I love the reflection of the clouds in the building. Where do the clouds end and the building begin?

Whoa! That is way kewl!!!

I had a reflection last week as well, but was out of town and didn't get it on the linky. If anyone really wants to see it, they will have to scroll down.

Carolyn Ford said...

It surely looks like a long way up there! The sky is so beautifully represented in the glass of those towers. The composition is outstanding...no doubt who the star of this photo is!

The reflection is so perfect I can hardly tell where the sky ends and the buildings begin. Or is it thwe other way round?

Hilda said...

Ooh! This is awesome James!

Beth Niquette said...

THAT is a stunning photo--I am just enamored--and this fills my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Did you notice the profile of the cloud? It looks like a face about to pucker up and kiss the side of that shiny mirror building!
