Wouldn't it be fun if the puddle froze? Then you could go skating on the roof-top reflection.

I've seen more wonderful puddle shots than anywhere! I love it.

Do you get a lot of rain? Or is this melting snow?

The reflection is beautiful, and this church is magnificent. The alter is truly amazing. This reminds me of "Pillars of the Earth". Gorgeous post. Kathy
