Ever get the feeling that the world is turning upside down? We do, too. While a startling life event or surprise encounter is usually to blame, sometimes it doesn't take anything more than the setting sun to figuratively flip us on our heads.

You don't even have to see the real thing to get that topsy-turvy feeling. Travel photography has a way of transporting us and altering our perspectives to help us see the world in a whole new light. When that travel photography happens to capture a beautiful landscape reflection, we can't help but feel delightfully turned around and, indeed, turned over.

Here are 10 stunning reminders from nature that things aren't always what they seem -- and that's a good thing.
