Cloud reflections-cityscapes

Once a beautiful, quiet place, the old center of the town seems to be the host of all kind of activities in winter time.

On the upper half of this picture you can see the children's heaven, the ice skating rink.
It was quite after the rain stopped that I took these shots.
Every surface was wet and shinny.

Cityscape reflection

On the left of this photo a part of St. Michael church is visible and in front of the church there are the ruins of the ancient city of NAPOCA.

These archeological findings were recently covered with a 82 square meter glass, a perfect "playground" for reflection photos.

Old building reflecting in the glass

Because of the reflected light there is no way to see what's under the glass in daylight. For this I must take some night shots, when the lights are on.

Anyway, I came her for the reflections.

Visit Weekend Reflections at New Town Area and Sky watch Friday for sky photos.

See this old center of my town on a beautiful summer day.

The clarity here is astonishing. Not a breath of wind disturbed the ponds. The buildings look absolutely perfect. Wonderful set of images for your post.

I wish you health, peace and happiness as you journey on into twenty ten.

Amazing photos! Such lovely colors and composition! You definitely have a certain recognizable style! When I first looked at the photo not realizing which blog I was in, I thought to myself that they look similar to Maia's photos. And then loooked at the url, and what do you know? They were Maia's photos! Well done, my friend!

The clarity here is unimaginably perfect.
I hope you do take some night shots - they would also make great reflections.
