Old hospital

By jacomes
The old hospital at Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, reflected in the lake of the Dom Carlos1 park.

Very many thanks to everyone who has voted and commented on "Clifton Bridge" and "Shadows 8" over the weekend. Both passed the magic 30 votes which means a lot to me...
And special thanks to Leonid (leo_nid) and Arne (saastad) for their valued awards on Clifton Bridge.

It's amazing that many of these old buildings are so ornate for something with such a utilitarian purpose. It puts me in mind of the old isolation hospital at Ventnor, IW, now long gone but formerly a sanitarium for TB patients, before that was largely eradicated. A very attractive study, James.

A superb reflection shot, James: nothing cropped off or missing that I have noticed, excellent detail and strictly vertical. I rather like the disturbance in the water that produces a really squiggly window Smile

Thank you Bill for the comment and your award, I've yet to find other photographers or a club here in central Portugal, so comments and discussion on this site is very important to me. This scene is a popular and much photographed one so one has to put something extra in to the shot to make it stand out, it seems I have succeed in that. Caldas da Rainha is a good two hour drive from here, it was where we as a family first started looking for somewhere to settle.

An excellent capture of this fine architectural gem and its reflections.
I can see a flipped version of just the reflections, square format...
