    This is a straight shot, not flipped or photo shoped except for a little contrast tweaking and sharpening. Its in a quarry in the Lake District in the UK, I have been before to capture it but the faintest ripple on the water spoils the shot. Yesterday morning I was in the area and decided to go early just after sunrise while the air was still and caught the perfect reflection.

    This is disused flooded quarry, the water is 35m deep with lots of underground tunnels, many cave divers have lost their lives exploring these tunnels, its a steep climb down and climbing experiance is a help

    This was taken on GX1 with p14-45 at 14mim

    Thanks guys, here is a wider shot and gives some scale. The 'eye socket' is nick named the Gymnasium as there are some bolted climbs in there and is about 10 meters high and leads through to another disused quarry
