I had a long walk along the Thames in London from Putney bridge to Chelsea bridge, on the way back I spotted this puddle reflection of a Church Clock tower and a modern building. The sun was catching the clock face a the right angle.
Saint Mary's church in Battersea, is a beautiful Grade I Georgian building in a spectacular location on the banks of the river Thames. William Blake was married here, J M W Turner painted from here and Benedict Arnold is buried in a crypt. They have a wonderful musical tradition and enjoy supporting the arts.

A very original image beautifully crafted. Lovely warm light and colours.
Pouring with rain here today, severe thunderstorms forecast for this afternoon all over this area.

If all puddles looked like this, I would spend less time avoiding them, this reflection is so crystal clear and of such a beautiful subject. The light bouncing from the clock is very nice indeed. This is a really nicely seen image, and an excellent result.
Thanks as always

Superbly spotted the mirror from the puddle,
We do not have much rain, so I never look into them... but with the modern building and the old archi.-style alongside with the golden clock - you manage to culminate a wonderful sight on photo.

Superb viewpoint brings a whole new meaning to puddles! This is stunningly imaginative, using the reflection this way round gives a beautiful quality to the reflective image, it is so well balanced with the eye popping architecture nicely placed in the 'water' Beautiful to just sit, look at and great title too, an image which conveys the description perfectly, the colours and warm light work so well, Credit that you have certainly exploited the limited space for max impact, an alluring shot excellently done. Congrats

Very observant of you! Creative! I like it. the reflection is very clear and sharp and contrasts with the brickwork indicating a precise DOF.
