Sky in the mirror

The sky reflected in the 'moat' of St Catz, an Oxford College designed by the fabulous Arne Jacobsen:


And back to Skywatch Friday.

I just love the perspective and the sky that reflects in the water.

Have a great weekend!

Now, this is where I take off my hat and bow. An excellent reflection - Arne Jacobsen would have been proud.

That's a great angle of the college - I remember being a little disappointed by its modern looks in a prospectus :)

Would you like to join in a give-away over on my blog?

Fab reflections and a lovely composition.

Looking down for the sky is not something I usually do but you have inspired me to have a go at reflections. That's if I can ever find water still enough in our often windy part of the world!

Magnificent. Beautiful reflections in water.

Oh, that's just beautiful. Amazing how the left line of the moat continues at exactly the same angle where it meets the top of the building, and then the reflection of that roof suggesting an 'X' with the lines of the trees on the left. And the reflection is beautiful!

Wonderful! If I could do like Jesus I would take a walk on the water while looking at the sky under my feets :)

Excellent reflection in the moat!

I had to check what moat means :) Why did they make moat? How deep is it. It makes a beautiful view- is it all year around or only after rain. I am very impressed by this architectural decision! Very beautiful reflection!

Splendid reflection shot, and what perspective! I can see all the converging lines.
