The population of Coho Salmon has diminished substantially over the past several years due to commercial overfishing, pollution, and a variety of other factors, but this is the Lagunitas Creek in Marin Çounty, California, where those that are left spawn from November until April.
The Lagujnitas Creek is my favorite place to shoot water reflections, but you won't find a display like this in the middle of the day -- the sun needs to be out and illuminating the surrounding vegetation, but the water needs to be shaded. This time of year that special window-of-opportunity is right around 9:15 to 9:45 a.m. It's a special time of day when I have the whole place to myself... Beautiful, isn't it?
