On sunny days I often seek out smooth water where I can make the most of brightly lit foliage reflections. I found a stand of new spring leaves topped by blue skies while hiking along the Popolopen Creek in Harriman State Park. An exposure of 3 seconds at f22 softened the water and a polarizing filter help saturate the color. Honestly, no Photoshop tricks were used!The Image of the Month is always available on the website at half price. Take advantage of the special price on this image with free shipping!
