Shadow or Reflection

BNSF 7206 leads the PASTAC over the Columbia River Bridge into Kennewick. The calm surface of the water poses a quandary, is the image seen a reflection or a shadow?
Technically, the reflection is a shadow by definition.
The reflection doesn't have anything to do with the shadow. What's your definition of a reflection (since you brought the subject up)? Just curious.
 
per http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/shadow
"1: partial darkness or obscurity within a part of space from which rays from a source of light are cut off by an interposed opaque body
2: a reflected image"
