Reflection of the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in the puddles on the walkway outside the hotel in Quebec City, Canada

The photo was taken after a rainy morning in Quebec City, Canada. I was walking along the boardwalk outside of the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac which looks out over the Saint Laurence River. I wanted to photograph the beautiful Chateau but I also wanted to capture it in a unique way. I tried to find puddles large enough to reflect the outlibe of the hotel and then I relized that a lot of little puddles lined up may capture the reflection, and it worked. I photographed the hotel in a unique and beautiful way.
