14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Leaves in a clear mountain stream. Although part of the water reflected the sky and foliage, a dark shadow on the right side of the image allowed the underwater leaves to be visible. I was looking for a simple leaf shot when I saw this more-interesting image.
