This was taken yesterday afternoon at Pontsticill in the Brecon beacons National Park.The large hole works in a similar way to the waste outlet in our bathtubs,the water overflows down here eventually to reach our taps.

Nice mirror effect!
And what is the role of this strange tower ?

A big hole, beautiful colour and nice landscape in the background.
How old is this device? Is the water good enough to drink?

The reflection is so good here that if you will flip the photo I'm not sure that we will notice :-)
The composition is very good with the duality of all those nice shapes and theire reflection. The round hole is also adding to the composition. Light and colors are also excellent!

I agree with the others on this one. Fantastiv reflection. Weird that the reflection is so good even with the large hole. Anyway, it's a marvellous picture, good composition, nice colors, nice landscape.

What fine lighting and clarity you have captured in this shot. I like the subtle tones and hues of colour in the water. The structure is architecturally very interesting and really enhances the photo. The reflections and sky help make this one a winner. Very impressive work.

Another beautiful scene from the national park.Great colours and sharpness.The stillness of the reservoir provides for a perfect mirror image for the pumphouse and walkway.The outlet could make an interesting image in its own right.

Very well composed picture. I like the colors and reflections on the water.

Personally I think this is your best work.
Put up a worshop done with Nikon Capture. Let me know what you think.

Excellent point of view to reach this diagonal composition, David. Well seen and well done, I like the symmety, too.
Tanks for posting.

Excellent reflections here David in unbelievably still water. I think the composition is great and had to look a few times to work out what was a reflection and what was real.
pablominto (53746) 2005-12-14 4:47
Another great reflection capture! Interesting subject, first time I see this way of coping with overflow... Composition wise impressive, I like the side lighting... Good colours and details!
feather (51130) 2005-12-14 9:02
Fantastic image Dave. The reflection is actually sharper than the original. I had to laugh at the inverted WS. The "plughole" looks like a flying saucer. Good PP work by jsec too.
PJE (20758) 2005-12-14 19:54
Having the circular drain so close to the relfection makes one stop and really look. Good work in capturing this vantage point. Lovely low light on the hills confirms to me you love the land where you live. Keep capturing such beauty!

Very effectful and well made compo David. Good use of the format and the best light. Interesting detail that hole in there.
Galmeida (12559) 2005-12-16 13:06
Your pictures are very good and also your Portfolio buyt they going better and better in a great atmosphere for quality and composition that I personaly like very much. You have also a Map information that with the Satelitte view shows the nearby location. Excelent and fantastic approach, colors, splendid saturation, light and so precious details so well captured and framed.
Great work and have a nice weekend. Best to you and your fine contribution and sharing to TE.
svo555 (1028) 2005-12-17 14:18
Excellen picture David!
Great reflections and good saturation of colour too.
Stepan (27210) 2006-01-31 13:59
Impressive, beautiful and perfect sharpness and reflection.
It's quite hard to figure out how the perspective really is... It even reamins a little mysterious. That's the power of your shot.
shiva_sg (600) 2006-02-04 8:47
Impressive reflections..!! Great colors, i especially like the reflections seen on the flowing water. The sky is also very nice. Good POV. TFS.
elmec (12210) 2006-02-08 16:15
Great photo and very interesting place!
rachelonthego (155) 2006-04-12 15:59
Working in the water industry I always get fascinated by water pictures, even more so when there is some sort of infrastructure involved.... :)
I have never been there and I don't know what the overflow is for, but to answer boulet83 there most certainly are some pumps, valves and electrical equipment in that tower...
And as everybody else has said the picture is beautiful and its reversable reflection impressive.
Thanks for sharing
