I've seen this view many times as I head up the Hood Canal to visit my good friend The Captian. However, what I normally see is some really murky blue water and plenty of ugly clouds. I actually saw the same thing today, but there was a bit of color in the clouds. I stopped and setup to take this photo but added a 9-stop ND filter to the mix to slow things down a bit. What i didn't expect to find was that when you eliminate the reflections from the water, it is actually green! My houw out eyes deceive us!
