Salzburg Underwater World (Weekend Reflections #13)

This is a reflection of a pegasus statue and some trees in a fountain at the Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg. The coins, leaves and debris in the fountain look like stars to me, also there is a coin or a leaf that looks like a menacing eye on the Pegasus reflection.

It's great to be back and I look forward to seeing lots of great reflections!

  9. Your reflection is very good and I think that one of the reason is that the coin/leaf for the eye!!

    When you talk about Saltzsbourg I want to go there - I have to go back one day.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy new year!!!

  11. Very creative shot. You couldn't have placed the objects in the water any better than they are. It has a rather ghostly affect and looks like a howling wind surrounding everything. Thanks for sharing this spectacular image James.

  36. This picture is so very cool! Love the wild horse eye.

    My reflection is much tamer, just the Chaunuka candles (with mouse).

    ReplyDelete
  37. Awesome.

    I found my little square Kodak print of the gazebo from Sound of Music... taken from a bus in a snow storm. Not the best photo, but still bring back memories 30+ years later!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's my favourite one yet---it would make a wonderful cover for a fantasy novel I'm thinking!

    Thank you for sharing photos of your trip; it sounds wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
