I just spent 10 lovely days in France and the highlight of the holiday had to be the stunning city of Bordeaux. I was totally awed by the magnificent buildings and monuments and the icing on the cake for me was this "Miroir D'eau" in the Place De La Bourse..
Made of granite slabs and covering a huge area, the water is pumped from below to just a depth of 2cm to cover the slabs and provide this wonderful pool reflecting the magnificent buildings and the clouds, a truly amazing sight.. at intervals a mist is pumped which gives an amazing fog affect...
