    Hi Guys,

    I wonder if someone could “shed some light” on to the reason behind this strange reflection.

    Im currently away on holiday in Cyprus and full of flu so I spend the day I. Bed, whilst laying there I noticed the reflection on the wall (image and video attached). It seems to be a full colour projection of outside the window. The image on the wall would show moving objects like people and all in colour. At first I thought it maybe some kind of reflection from the pool, but there is no line of sight between that part of the wall and any water or any other shiny objects.

    The image was taken at 12:45 pm and the sun was at a high point in the sky, the reflected objects were approx 20mtrs from the wall.


    Thanks in advance

    Joe

    Were the curtains drawn leaving a small gap? Was the image upside down? If so, it is a camera obscure effect. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camera_obscura

    Yes the curtains were drawn, however the image seems to be the right way up. For some reason I am unable to upload the image/video or a link.
