squared sun

The old elements that are the sun, the earth and the water connived and contrived in giving us a reflection of a sun "square". Goodness, even the sides are perfectly straight. The zoom of my camera is limited, at only about 21mm (or 11x), so I didn't realize this trickery not until I downloaded the photos in my notebook. I took a lot of shots so I literally can count how long this intriguing reflective/refractive occurrence lasted: only about 5 minutes, from 6:07PM to 6:12PM. Out of this time range, the sun was either too high or too low and the clear square lines were not there.
