Netarts River

Another version of the liquid gold photo from our fall hike along Netarts River last week.  I felt like there was more green than yellow in the trees, so the reflection color was really surprising to me. I compared these images to some from a photo shoot up near Lake Tahoe a few years ago and was surprised by the color difference. Near Lake Tahoe reflecting trees were Aspens, and the reflection color was more of a lemon yellow. I regret not paying more attention to the tree variety along Netarts River, but definitely some evergreen mixed in with big leaf maple which turns a yellow to rusty color, so I guess a gold color must have more green in it.  We're probably still a few weeks away from peak leaf color.
