Refraction of light by water. Upside down image of the Eiffel Tower in a round glass of water. The water acts as a spherical lens, collecting and focusing light to form an inverted image of the Eiffel Tower behind it. This is caused by refraction, the bending of light rays when they pass from one medium to another. Photographed in Paris, France.
