Farther than we usually see…

The palace seemed a mirage in itself.

The waters of the canal sparkled in the sun, drawing my gaze to it.

The stately building dominated the landscape, and the landscape seemed designed for it.

I rode my bike. Strong beams of light cut through the narrow crevices between the trees and crushed my gravel tires.
