River reflection landscape

Last month, while in New York, we visited B&H photo. I wanted to get a new point-and-shoot camera to replace the Canon S90 I lost a few years back while traveling. I bought a Sony RX100, which has all sorts of cool features built in, including a panorama setting. You move the camera while holding down the shutter button and it takes a continuous stream of photos and stitches them together. You have to hold the camera at the same level while moving - a bit of a challenge to do without a tripod.

This scene is a river reflection of the trees on the far bank with the blue sky and clouds. It looks very impressionistic to me - all from the ripples in the "mirror" of the river.
