the visible light leaving you reaches the mirror, some event happens, light is "reflected" back to you. Now imagine the color of light that is leaving you is blue, just guessing here but I think the light returning to you would be red(or some other lesser wave). I picture it as "stretching" that same bit of wave (energy) across a greater distance, c being c, light is seen as a lesser wave length.
Is that right?
No, assuming a perfect mirror.
