Reflecting

Just in case anyone had any uncertainty on the topic of whether I have a fascination with reflections, here is more evidence that I am enthralled with pictures within pictures (not that anyone really needed any more evidence).

This window at Mission San Juan Capistrano is reflecting the courtyard garden.  Note the wooden beam across the top of the window and the stucco walls, both of which are typical of early California mission buildings.


Isn't this a most whimsical view of the 'gathering place of the community' in early San Juan Capistrano?

Wow, that is a fantastic reflection, and a great window to host it! It looks impossibly clean...
Really beautiful capture!

That reflection looks almost unreal - well captured. I had to look twice. I actually thought I might be on the inside of the building looking out. Nicely taken.

Major skills, Willow! You might consider a series on reflective services. glass, water, metal (shiny cars), light reflected off clouds, .. .

I am entranced by the same phenomenon of pictures within pictures. I even try to incorporate it into my garden design. I love your photo! It's a perfect example of why I like it so much.

The colors are certainly californian/southwest! It's a beautiful photo. I wouldn't have known it's a reflection if I hadn't read your post... great photo!
