Mount Victoria reflections

Walking home I often photograph this view. It’s one of my favourites along the Wellington waterfront. The city is known for it’s wind and in the late afternoon the harbour would never be this still. This photograph is a bit of an optical illusion but I promise no Photoshop was used here. There is a sculpture that sticks out into the harbour called the Len Lye Water Whirler. There was a large puddle of water at the base of the sculpture. Putting the camera lens almost touching the edge of this still water I was able to create this reflection. If you look closely you can see the reverts of the metal surface.
