I just figured out why the water reflection is more vivid than the actual trees. It is the polarizing effect of the water. If you put a polarizing filter on your camera and are at a right angle from the sun, the filter will remove much of the haze and enhance the colors in the trees.

This is also related to the fact that a polarizing filter can be used to eliminate reflections in glass or water. This works because the reflection is already polarized and the filter will cancel a polarized reflection when rotated to the proper angle.

There! Now you know as much about optics as I do!
