Sunset in the Creek Painting

 I've always liked the "Golden Hour" - that time when the sun is well on its way to sinking beneath the horizon - and indeed is already below foliage and buildings - but the sky is still alight and casting interesting shadows and colors on the ground below. The creek provides opportunities for such reflections - but due to the dense overhead canopy of branches and leaves in the summer, these are often fleeting. What I tried to capture here was one such instant, with the ground momentarily taking a purplish hue reflected from the clouds, and the shallow water itself just briefly going pinkish.
