The Two Sides of Reflection

Once again I am returning to a favorite subject of mine, reflection. There is an interesting contrast in the way these two surfaces reflect light. In the process of reflecting sunlight, the moon takes that light, softens it and gives off a nice glow. Water has an opposite effect on light, sharpening it, making it brighter. Thus, the campus lights reflected in the duck pond actually shimmer. Both reflections are very beautiful in their own way.
