  1. wow! Great capture,a mirror,something seldom used as an art work,
    it will give a more spectacular shot when the conditions are right,
    maybe at sunrise or sunset.

    1. It was a bit tricky. I had been down there a couple of other times and the sun was in the wrong spot so didn't get such a good shot.

    1. The sun's reflections have scorched the grass in front which is why you see the sprinklers spraying water in front.
