|Capitol Reflections - Glenna Bayer pictured the Capitol, Washington, D.C. reflected by the aptly named Capitol Reflecting Pool. The Ulysses S. Grant Memorial is the statue silhouetted by the floodlit building.

Many (but not all) Greeks held that we see objects by rays emitted from our eyes.
Each wave gives up to three closely spaced images of the same slice of the Capitol. Two slices are inverted and one upright. The overall reflection is a stack of pancake slices some tossed upside down and some the right way up.
Let the wind move the roughly cylindrical waves in a different direction and the pancakes tilt, twist and contort.
