Reflection of the Sun

This image of natural beauty was taken near my home. It perfectly proves the reflection ability of sunlight in all directions. For many centuries physicians like Newton, Huygens and Maxwell made many observations on the structure of the sunlight. They all came up with the same result, which is that sunlight has a wavy and a granular structure. Reflection of sunlight does not affect its speed, frequency, energy or color, but it does affect its direction. As it can be clearly seen in the photo, reflection is the collection of rays of light, which makes a symmetrical move. These rays basically strike to a particular surface and then, go back to their starting point exactly with the same angle.
