Transmission of Light for WPC (Sunlight)

Upon entering a denser substance, transmitted light slows in speed. If the light enters at an angle, the light’s path bends. This bending is termed refraction.

I like how the CIMSS defines the refraction (WPC for this week). They also provide a diagram to explain the theory:

I snapped this view from my hotel window when I was out-of-town for a business trip.  The airplane showing at the bottom of the photo was a nice surprise. 🙂   

Cathy shot of a Tarpon late in the afternoon while diving on the Lighthouse Reef Atoll in Belize. Her stunning shot is a perfect and beautiful photo example of refraction! Click HERE...

Enjoy the weekend!
