Symmetry by Xerces Symmetry by Xerces
A photo of the beautiful Porma Reservoir in Northern Spain. This was taken on the first half of the trip. We had beautiful blue skies like that for 4 days until the rain set in. When driving up to the reservoir, we took a road pretty much surrounding it and it looks just like a mirror. I've never seen water so still!
The reflection is near perfect- you can see the ripples in the snow better than the rest of the reflection.
We had lunch at this place. It was sad to see there was so little water in the reservoirs at the moment, compared to usual, although the heavy rain afterward was probably a welcome break.

I love looking at landscape shots like these. :D It's always an incredible sight for me to see the original land form reflected on the water's surface.
