The trees are just wonderful. A great spot to be pensive.

Love the colors reflected in the windows - I see purple and red along with the blue.

Lovely image, the tree reflections seem to soften the rigid lines of the buildings.

Love how the columns frame the reflection in the first and the second is a very lovely catch of tree and sky!

Fabulous shots! I particularly like the ginger leaves on the second one.
We're both doing trees today.

What a lovely idea Juliet, to photograph the reflections - I especially like the rowan's. Have a pleasant weekend.

Riet said...

What a beautiful reflection.Love it.

Julie said...

The colours of the Rowan reflect very nicely in the windows of the building. It is a lovely soft tree and I like the shapes of the leaves - very geometric.

James said...

Trees make great reflections especially when the are colorful like the one in the bottom picture.

hi crafty green, i'm passing through a need to see trees reflected - in water - there's soemthing about the softening of their form and detail that appeals. to me. good poetry does the same for me. softens the form and detail so i can experience it with more of an implied edge. steven

Especially love how in the one photo columns add an extra dimension of framing to the reflections! Beautiful!

Nicely done. I like them both for different reasons. The first has such linear power softened by the curves of nature.

I like the delicacy of the second.

Ebie said...

Through the reflection on the glass, I could see the colors of blues, purples and pinks of the sky! I love the reds on the tree!

Mary-Laure said...

More reasons for me to want to explore Edinburgh... I've been longing for Scotland for years!

Nicole said...

I love that second shot!
Postcard perfect!

Thérèse said...

The tree is giving a soul to the office. I am sure a lot of people notice it from inside the building.

Both are wonderful, yet the second one is fantastic. Methinks I need to travel to Edinburgh again. 2001 is too far away.

Enjoyed both photos; however i couldn't help placing my hand over that portion of window left in the crop, i think it makes for a cleaner clearer crop with just the whole window
I loved watching the sky through the window, loved the close up of the fence design in the other
much love

Lovely photos, I would love to visit. Thank you!

Thomma Lyn said...

Beautiful -- I love how you've captured the reflections of the colors and the tree.

Dimple said...

These are both beautiful shots. The points on the fence remind me of the points on the gate I just posted...thanks for the visit & comment.

Poet, great clear reflections! Oh BTW I love your header photo! Thanks for commenting at my WR post! :)

quilly said...

I like the way the different panes of glass reflect different colors in that second photo. I was so taken with that I almost missed realizing the tree was a reflection and not real!

Stine in Ontario said...

The rowan tree makes an especially nice reflection! I love the red berries.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Wonderful reflections! It seems your shots want to share some story behind those great shots of reflection. Wish I can hear it.

Have a happy Sunday.

Icy BC said...

Beautiful reflections, and the colors are amazing!

Rebecca said...

Oooh, I love that autumn colored tree.

hip chick said...
