Reflections of YOUR City!

In starting this thread, I'm interested in seeing other night skylines reflected in bodies of water!

To me, the perspective is more important than whether a shot is perfect. Every picture has its own story to tell, so I certainly don't want to discourage anyone from taking pictures or posting them. Thanks for the contributions, particular you guys from Canada!

I think that is probably because the lake is deep with strong currents, whereas here in Miami, we can get this glassy effect on calm nights because the bay is shallow. Between Miami and Miami Beach, it only goes to about 40 feet.
