The Sun's Mysterious Reflections at Svolvaer (at the Lofoten Islands)

The Sun's Mysterious Reflections at Svolvaer (at the Lofoten Islands)

The following row of nine houses has been photographed at Svolvaer harbor at the Lofoten Islands. Probably the houses have been positioned in a curved front-line.
The peculiar reflections of the sun cannot be observed at the windows of the houses, but is clearly identified in the mirrored image of the second house at the left side of the photograph.
The sun must have been very low at that date. The sun's rays must have hit the window's glass, but the direct intense reflections will only be seen in the mirrored image of the building.
I asked myself why the intensity will only be displayed in the mirrored image of the building. Has anyone ever observed such physical effects before?
It might be a fine riddle for the students in optical studies... Which way has the path of the solar rays been following to generate the intensest reflections at the mirrored image of the second building to the left? And why isn't the intensity being observed at the house's windows?
