Reflections in Still Water

The Delaware River near Milford, Pennsylvania, casein, 5 x 8 inches
The surface of the river becomes glassy as the afternoon wears on. Here's what I was thinking about as I was painting the reflections:

• The reflections mirror the colors of the far bank of trees.
• The colors in the reflection are very slightly darker than the colors being reflected.
• Within the area of the reflections of the trees, the detail is stretched vertically downward.
• The bottom edge of the reflection of the trees breaks up into horizontal fragments.
• Slight zephyrs create a blue patch in the middle distance, disturbing the vertical reflections.
• The bridge is reflected in the form of fragmentary strokes.

Something I've noticed in a park nearby is the the large field lights (orange in colour) are much more chromatic in the reflection than the actual light source. This would be in early morning or just before dusk with lights seen across the small lake. I have some thoughts about the gloss of the water causing this but haven't been able to find information about this. Any thoughts?
