I love the way light goes from dark to bright in the woods. Places where the trees are thin and the light comes through the canopy can act as spotlights and show off things that would otherwise seem ordinary. I have painted a few images in this area of the Dukes Creek Trail but never of the simple flat water looking downstream. The view isn't particularly interesting but the light at that time was. Sometimes the feel of a place can speak louder than the forms.
