Reflections: "Water" on fire 1

Stata Center for Artificial Intelligence at MIT in Cambridge, MA (USA) built by Frank Gehry.

 

This is the first photo of three of reflections in a little courtyard where the light of the setting sun got reflected from very reflective shiny metal plates onto the brick pavement and then onto a brick wall from which it bounced back onto metal plates... The first time I saw it it looked like some strange cosmic phenomenon until I realized that it looks like swimming pool water on fire.. It was a true strike of luck to be there at the moment when the very special lighting created this increadible illusion.

 

Photoshop was used for the minor enhancement of the contrast and tonal balance and crop.

 

Best viewed . Viewing it in standard flickr format loses most of the colors and dynamics of this photo...
