Weekly photo challenge: Refraction

Walking beside Lake Burley Griffin this afternoon, around the back of the National Museum, I found these panels of mirrors reflecting, in a warped kind of way, rows of slim young gum trees growing near the water.  I was under the trees with a project of photographing details, but what caught my eye was this long image of the very trees I was under:

What a simple way to adorn an otherwise ugly set of slopey walls:

The panels create the effect of fun-house mirrors, bending and twisting the straight tree trunks:

Fun to look at and fun to photograph:

Sometimes the weekly photo challenge topic serendipitously coincides with my weekend outing.  I love it when that happens.
