PHOTOGRAPHY: Reflections in the Thames.

Found these pictures over at Ian Visits. Ian, an avid photographer takes pictures of buildings along the banks of the Thames with their respective reflections. The resultant image is (in some cases) a literal mirror image of the buildings themselves.

Have a look at the pictures below:

Ian, noted this was new of his more surreal pictures, can you see why?

Ans:

Not due to some magical property in the water, but because it is both a tidal river and in an area which is fairly windy, the river is usually too turbulent for the reflections to be visible in the choppy waves.

This morning, the pond-like silence of the water is not just somewhat eerie (where are the boats for a start?), but you get the rare chance to capture really good stable reflections of the buildings and clouds in the water.
