image captionPhilip Watson photographed the Grand Pier at Weston-super-Mare: ". It was a filthy day, with torrential rain, and as we sheltered from the elements, I spotted the carriages from the Golden Arrow pier train, parked up awaiting their tractor, and reflected in the rain-slicked new decking."

image captionAllan Donaldson: "If conditions are still, a very clear reflection of the Red Squirrels can be achieved. These were taken during my second attempt as the first day I tried, about three weeks earlier, was just too windy and the Squirrels didn't show at all."

image captionNeil Duffy: "Pointing straight at the propeller nosecone of a King Air aircraft, created this weird effect. The propellers are actually behind the surface but can be seen stretching inwards from the corners as they reflect off the side of the conical shape of the hub. Also, if you look at the grain in the corona of the sun, it also reminds the eye that this is actually a 3D surface pointing towards the camera rather than away."
