This is a fourth photo of reflections on the Fyris River in a very calm day in the autumn. The buildings that are reflected are the premises of Västgöta Nation. Västra Ågatan. As with my previous post I have flipped and rotated it 180 degrees for better comparison with photos of the Nation.
A nation is a society for students at the University of Uppsala. Västgöta Nation is a nation for students from the province Västergötland in the south western part of Sweden. There are 14 Student Nations in Uppsala. The student nations are almost as old as the University itself. Västgöta Nation that was founded in 1639 has 1 200 members. It is one of the smaller nations at Uppsala. The Nation has extensive cultural activities including three choirs, a theatre club and an orchestra.

Wow, these reflections are very nice.
I like the different tones of yellow and green in the leaves of the tree, from light coloured at the left to
dark at the right.
The facade of the Nation house is almost perfectly reflected with its red colour strongly contrasting with
the blue sky.
The leaves floating on the water create a beautiful, dreamlike atmosphere.
Best regards, Paul

Really beautiful, the reflection, the sun light on the tree and building, the colours and, of course, those fallen leaves on the water surface! Really well done!

The reflection in the water gives a very
nice effect. The picture has a lots of
details, but the great composition makes
the picture not to busy. The picture
has also very nice bright colors and the
leaves in the water creates a nice atmosphere.

Good afternoon Ulf,
I like your photos of reflections. The rotation is a very interesting idea, and makes the view look like a painting.
I wonder if Sweden has a special atmosphere for mirror reflections :-) I have taken a few photos that could easily be rotated too.
Happy first of May.
