Reflections on reflections

I spent quite a while today walking along the canal and by the pond in Stephens Green looking at the reflections of trees in the water. I became completely fascinated by the ever changing images of the branches as the water rippled. As I walked the images changed and I realised that the reflections were never the same .. not from one second to the next or from one vantage point to another. Every glimpse was unique. I sat watching trying to keep my mind out of the way and just taking in the images on the water ever changing.. I found my mind calming down from all the questioning about why the reflections look different from every angle and how is it that light lets us see objects.. and are we really seeing objects or just reflections of objects ..which makes 'reflections' actually reflections of reflections.......
