Wonderful reflections of the sky and clouds in the glass panels, Peter. What is beneath the dome, I wonder? Well captured. Carol

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea...

What a great comp! Fascinating reflections, good lead-in and gloriously blue sky + fuffy clouds! Another excellent image.

A fascinating structure, beautifully detailed, and a sky to die for, but the reflections wouldn't be the same without it.
