    Ah, yes – when I was there in 2006 they were still working on it and I couldn’t get near… one of the things I’ll need to look up when I get back! Seeing this, I could easily spend an hour or so there… :) Great shot, Ethna, lovely composition!

  • Thanks. It’s an interesting building with great reflections in the shallow pool surrounding it.
