Default Reflections - Swimming Pool

Wish I had been standing in a slightly different location, I don't like how I framed the picture. But the reflection is nice. It's quite the swimming pool, isn't it?

Wow! Is that one of the pools at Hearst Castle, San Simeon, California?

Great pic, if you don't like the framing could you crop it?

Nice angle. Ive usually seen pics taken from where the people are standing looking into the left side. And yes calr that is at Hearst's place. What a shame its just a museum now. It was built to be lived in.

Thanks, it is indeed the indoor pool at Hearst Castle. It's such an awesome pool, pictures don't quite it justice (even though it's been photographed from just about every angle).

There are a number of different tours they have of the castle and while they all visit the indoor pool, they don't all visit the same spots. The tour we took spent more time at the pool, rather than just hitting the corner with the people.

I wish now that I had shot from a slightly different angle. As I often do, I was trying to take two different shots at the same time (which doesn't usually work), and I took the picture quickly and didn't look at angles as carefully as I should have. Some day perhaps I'll go back and try to take it again.

Hearst Castle is a great place to take a camera and you prove that to be true.
