Midland Hotel reflected in Barbirolli Square

Royal Mill, Ancoats
Ancoats was the world's first industrial suburb. This portrait of the classic Royal Mill reflected in the waters of the canal was taken before the regeneration scheme which will change the area forever

Mills at Ancoats (1)
Rippled reflection of the glorious old mill buildings in the canal on a crisp, freezing, bright morning

Mills at Ancoats (2)
The smashed windows of this abandoned, historic mill at Ancoats become like a painting in the almost still canal waters in which they are reflected

After the Rains
Elegant Chepstow House, Chepstow Street, is pictured in a sun-lit puddle after a down-pour. This former warehouse, owned by Samuel Samuel, is now apartments

City Centre Reflections
The strong, red brick of the Evershed's building reflects to shimmering effect in the Rochdale Canal running beneath the centre of Manchester

The Old Fire Station
The intricate cupolas, balustrades and terracotta detail of Manchester's old fire station reflects in myriad angles in the new glass entrance of Picadilly Train Station

The Hacienda
The newly built Hacienda building reflections in the multi-faceted, mirrored facade of No. 1, City Road

Joshua Hoyle Building
At the foot of Picadilly Station approach, the curved glass frontage of the station reflects the intricate Hoyle Building, now home to Malmaison Hotel

Steps In The Sky
Canada House, Chepstow Street, becomes almost ecclesiastical in the curved glass corner of 101 Barbirolli Square. The 'steps in the sky' are not reflections, but real steps inside the new building

John Ryland's Library
This classic Deansgate landmark billows out in the distorted glass of the more modern Phoenix House opposite, bringing its rich sandstone colours to life

T.V. Highlights
Granada Television's communications tower loses its rigidity in reflection on Quay Street

A New Barcelona
Gaudiesque curves appear when Canada House is reflected in the office buildings of Barbirolli Square

The Lowry Hotel
The stylish Lowry Hotel on the Salford/Manchester borders has a flat facade, but at the back, the curving design reflects in on itself to great effect

St. Ann's Square
The classic Victorian facade on St. Ann's Square is reflected in the wonderfully complex glass panes of St. Ann's Church. The picture, looked at carefully, also reveals the pink and gold stucco of the building to the right

Exchange Quays
The tinted glass of these striking, modern buildings at Salford Quays, just across from the Old Trafford football grounds create a wealth of fantastic shapes, bold dramatic shades of blues and turquoise, and distortions when one is reflected in another
