Altare della Patria/Altar of the Fatherland (Weekend Reflections # 393)

Rome, Italy

This is the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II reflected in a puddle. I flipped the reflection upside down because I think it looks better and I didn't want Victor Emmanuel to fall off of his horse. :-)

You can click HERE for more information about this monument.

Have a great weekend!

Your reflection is so clear and your flipping the image threw me off until I read your comment. It is a strong reflection.

Another awesome puddle reflection. Molto bene, James!

A wonderful reflection James, of an impressive piece of architecture - it's been some 45 years since I visited Rome and experienced this monument "in the flesh" and the image is still firmly planted in my memory. Thank you for enabling me to "revisit" - and for hosting! Wishing you a marvellous weekend.

That's one of the best reflections in a puddle I've seen.

Looks really clear! I like reflections like that. The water in the puddle must have been calm :-)
