Salisbury Cathedral

This is Salisbury Cathedral, in southern England, taken with the reflection in the Baptismal font. The perfect reflection from the still water makes an arresting image and brings out the detail in the ancient stone architecture. The main part of the Cathedral was finished in the late 1250's and today it houses the world's oldest working clock (from around AD 1386) and it has the best surviving copy of the four original copies of the Magna Carta.
