    Usually, the water reflects the color of the sky.  More blue above, more blue the water appears to be.  If a body of water does not reflect the color of the sky it is because the soil below may be muddy or have some other condition that interferes with the clearness of the water.

    The bodies of water on the planet are like a giant mirror and reflect the blue of the sky or the gray.It also has to do with sun light and whether it is an overcast or a cloudy day. I know that the psychological effects of a bright sunny day and a dull, overcast day are totally different and I'm glad to see blue sky and blue water.

    Its color is that of what it reflects- a blue sky in the first case, and grey clouds in the second.
