Concentrating Solar Power Projects: Solar Paces
Photo shows two long receiver tubes supported above the ground surface by a metal framework.  Along the ground below are a series of mirrors attached to metal hoops that pivot throughout the day so that the mirrors track the sun and keep sunlight focused on the receivers overhead.

These receivers and mirrors are part of Ausra's Kimberlina solar thermal power plant, a linear Fresnel reflector system located near Bakersfield, California.
