Reflection of Antelope Island in Great Salt Lake


The photo above showing Frary Peak on Antelope Island and its reflection in Utah’s Great Salt Lake was captured on March 11, 2012 from the Antelope Causeway just before noon. If something looks a little odd, it’s because the image is upside down.  Photographer: Joe Bauman

When water is calm and clear, it may be hard to differentiate the reflected image from the original, but reflected images are never quite as bright. On water surfaces, only at an incident angle of 90 degrees is the original image 100 percent reflected. In this case, with the Sun high in the sky, the sharpest reflections occur on the far side of the lake.
