Which way is up?

Sometimes we are fooled by what we see. We base our perceptions on our limited experience and what we see we interpret incorrectly. Photos add another dimension of misperception through the process of representing only a small portion of the overall scene and the selection of the view by the photographer. Photos have always been incorrectly considered accurate representations of reality, when in fact, they have always been manipulated. But that does not mean we cannot enjoy the beauty of a lake at sunset.
