This is the last photo of a series of photos taken in a limited area along Fyris River in Uppsala. It is also a fifth photo of reflections on the river in an autumn day when it was very calm. However, when I took it there was some wind that caused ripples on the water. The building is once again Grand Hotell Hörnan. As with my previous refections photos I have flipped and rotated it 180 degrees for better comparison with other photos of the hotel.
Grand Hotell Hörnan has to day 37 rooms. In the early 1900's, an engineer from Uppsala, Hjalmar Kallenberg, went to Italy to study how hotels were run there. Once back in Uppsala, he acquired a piece of land on the eastern shore of Fyrisån and started to build a hotel of European standards. The architect who designed the hotel was Ture Stenberg.
It the winter of 1907 Grand Hotell Hörnan opened. In those days it was Uppsala's largest and most exclusive hotel with 29 rooms.
The style is neo-baroque with features of Art Nouveau. The facades are plastered in a light color and has a gently curving gable, richly decorated with ornaments and with wrought iron balconies.

J'aime beaucoup les reflets inversés et celui-là me plait particulièrement, surtout avec la zone plus "floue" en bas de l'image. Les couleurs sont superbes et les feuilles flottant sur l'eau apportent encore un intérêt supplémentaire à cette belle photo.

The shimmering water gives an impressive dream-like quality to this image. The colours are lovely and the leaves give a magical effect. Excellent composition and beautifully taken.

The ripples-effect on water gave an extra dimension to the inverted reflection, which by itself is a marvelous one.
It looks as a frosted-glass put on water surface.
Lovely shot, good contrast of colors and light.

Even the same building as photo number
three, it is a completely different
(and just as beautiful) picture.
You show that a different position
(even if only a few meters away)
can make a whole difference...Good work.

The leaves from the water become a lot more fascinating when turned into something blowing in the wind. The ripples in the lower part of the picture have a great effect, making this really look like a rather refined water colour painting. Among the many similar pictures of reflections I have seen posted on TE this definitely is among the finest.

Another beautiful reflection! The movement creates a beautiful effect on the water! - it's like a painting. I like the way you framed it, the colours and those fallen leaves! Well done!

it is not a shot,it looks like a dream
from the future,nice colors indeed
almost fascinated,is this the palette
of a painter that makes his picture?
excellent composition beautifully
taken,in my opinion the leaves
give a magic effect
