Small waves reaching the shores of a lake distort whatever they reflect, creating unique patterns every moment. In this frame, they were reflecting a small group of clouds, colored by the pre-dawn light. The trick here, I think is to pay close attention to the shutter speed. The amount of light in such situations can be low, and a slow shutter speed can blur out the reflections and remove any color saturation. I used a relatively fast shutter speed 1/30s to freeze the waves and the reflections.
