Weekend Reflections:
Hyde Town Hall


The typical British Summer: two fine days and a thunderstorm!

When the heavy rain hit Hyde last Saturday the market traders hardly had time to cover their wares.

I took a shot of the Town Hall reflected in the waters across the market ground.

A fuller version can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

Wonderful reflection of the tower. It's not always easy to get good reflections in rain puddles.

You are really ahead of your time, Gerald ;)

It's nevertheless a great shot. We finally have some showers in Stuttgart. The nature and the people enjoy! Wish you a nice weekend.

Wonderful...the only water reflections on sidewalks that we get in the summer is from lawn sprinklers! Enjoy the water from the sky...we all need it!

Love how the outline of the building's reflection blurs and melts into the puddles!

How I long for rain, its smell, its sound, its feeling...thank you for this escape even if only in thoughts. Please have a great start into the weekend.

The wet surface is a perfect place to look for reflections. It's great when you can see the positive side of a rain shower. :)

Wonderful reflection - I agree that it's hard to get reflections in puddles after a rainstorm ... but you managed to do it - very well too!
