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!

Olivier said...

Superbe reflet...bravo

Maria Berg said...

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!!!

Vogon Poet said...

Excellent idea and a very good image. A fantastic reflection, even in the literal meaning of the adjective...

Bogey said...

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.

awarewriter said...

James. You are the master of reflections. This photo is wonderful. Each week it gets better and better.

Thom said...

The first thing I noticed was the eye on the horse. It just looks surreal. Beautiful my friend. You've got quiet the eye for this. I love it :) TBK

Very creative to see the coins and leaves as stars and the eye of the Pegasus! Beautiful reflection.

Very well composed, James. The eye is the icing on the cake, the coin in the pudding.

Good to have you back.

Sistertex said...

Wow James, very cool. Spectacular catch...good eye.

Lily Hydrangea said...

welcome back James!
Beautiful (& inspiring) reflection-as always! & yes the coins do look like stars.
I bet it was extra fun looking for reflections in another country.
: )

Dimple said...

Welcome back! Excellent photo, combining the reflection with the not-reflected to make a unified whole. Bravo!

ruma2008 said...

The shadow of the tree is a decoration of the statues.

Thank you for a beautiful present of Christmas.

Alexa said...

Welcome back, James. Your shot is awesome!

Gattina said...

That's such an amazing picture, that I had to look at it twice to understand what it was. Beautiful !

chrome3d said...

Most excellent reflection. Tim Burton would have been happy to see it in one of his movies.

Thérèse said...

A Pegasus with wet feet!
Happy Holidays! Not much time to blog but I will be back.

Dina said...

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

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

Martha in PA said...

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!

Susan at Stony River said...

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!

Greyscale Territory said...

Quite a haunting reflection! You get the feeling that many eyes have strayed here and dreamed awhiles!

Serendipity said...

Great reflection! It has a mystical quality.

Jan said...

Fabulous photo and reflection, James. Merry Christmas.

tapirgal said...

This is an extraordinary reflection, James. And it does look a lot like a constellation, especially with the wonderful pegasus.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

You sure do have a ball in your time over there. Did you sing "The hills are alive?" to "The Sound of Music?"

Regina said...

Awesome!
Hello James.
I will post a little late. Still has jet lag:)
Merry Christmas!

Helena said...

This is beautiful! I thought it was a night sky until you mentioned the leaves in the bottom of the pond.
