Reflection Study: Tanner Creek in the Shade

I headed back to the hike along Tanner Creek this week.  In last week's photo the water was reflecting the golden hillside color, and I was curious if I could find the water reflecting a greener tone in the shade.  As you can see, there isn't much color reflected on the water at all.  I was disappointed with that, but it was a learning experience. I am still interested in finding that green reflection, so I've updated my theory.  Now I'm wondering if I could get a green reflection on a sunny day in the summer when all the deciduous leaves shift the color balance to a darker green.  Trees are just leafing out this week, so I will give it a month or so and try this shot one more time.

Beautiful, I like your experimental approach. That is how you learn things the best.

Nice pic of the creek! You don't need to capture green reflections, this photo is great.

It's a beautiful capture, regardless.
Chasing the light is a wonderful ongoing adventure, never knowing what we'll find.

The best way to get colour reflections in water is the things reflecting need to be in sunlight but the water it is reflecting into needs to be in the shade
