Golden Reflections

From Eureka Skydeck 88 there are plenty of vantage points from which to photograph Melbourne. With the building roughly in the shape of a star, it’s possible to look into the next window along through the gold coating. Sometimes, however, it’s possible to view spectacular reflections of the city alongside the direct view.

Reflected is Abbotsford and East Melbourne, including the Hilton and Carlton and United Breweries. On the right is the direct view over the CBD and along Drummond Street and Rathdowne Street in Carlton. The sharp building edge divides the image and gives the impression of a diptych.

Looking north towards Carlton, Abbotsford is reflected in Eureka Tower’s gold coated windows.
