This picture can be used to talk about topics like places and vacations. I’d use it as teaching material to introduce the topic to students. Students can also share their previous vacation destination(s) by showing pictures to the class and talking about them.

“Good work seeing the refection here, it looks like a mirror under the earth. I also love the colors, the blues of twilight mixed with hints of the last moments of warm light in the day.”
