Morning Reflections

Downtown Colorado Springs has a number of beautiful old historic buildings, statues, public art and, of course, great views of Pikes Peak. This shot, taken at sunrise, captures Pikes Peak and the St Mary's Catholic Cathedral as their images reflect off of the American Nation Bank building. I have to be careful driving downtown in the morning because I find this view distractingly dangerous.

That's my world. To view photos from around the world, travel on over to That's My World Tuesday.

Drive carefully!

Oh...I love it. What a perfect capture! I keep passing buildings with reflections in my town and I always think that I have to go back and take some shots, but the reflections are nothing like yours! Fabulous!

that's pretty interesting shot and it's really beautiful. I'd probably be distracted too while driving. Drive carefully.

I agree it would be dangerously distracting, its very beautiful. Great Photo.

Beautiful way to capture the mountain !My daughter had that view from her house in Security when she was stationed at Ft Carson.

Gaelyn said...

Awesome capture. I can see why you'd be distracted.

Brilliant reflection. I'd never see anything that spectacular here.

Eleanor said...

A marvellous photo. I also tend to get distracted by beautiful sights while driving - a real hazard.
