    The original finding aid described this as: Description: This interesting and well composed view of open ocean, sunglint and clouds, location unknown, illustrates the reflective nature of water. Smooth water surfaces have a very high reflective surface like a mirror but rough water surfaces with lots of choppy waves, have a very low reflective potential and appear as mostly dark patches. The combination of low sun angle, clouds, shadows and sea states produces an attractive composition of contrasts. Image 006 was selected by the Public Affairs Office (PAO) for public release.
