What good is a density plot legend that is only labeled at the ends? You can
construct a much nicer plot legend yourself. And since when are lakes
purple? Create the density plot, then create a legend using a ContourPlot,
and then put them together on a piece of paper using Inset and Text
statements.

densityplot =
DensityPlot[Sin[x y], {x, 0, \[Pi]}, {y, 0, \[Pi]},
Mesh -> False,
PlotPoints -> 30,
ColorFunction -> "FallColors",
AspectRatio -> Full,
PlotRange -> {{0, \[Pi]}, {0, \[Pi]}},
Frame -> True,
FrameLabel -> {x, y},
PlotLabel -> Sin[x y],
BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 12},
ImageSize -> {400, 450}
];

plotlegend =
ContourPlot[y, {x, 0, 1}, {y, -1, 1},
Contours -> Range[-1, 1, 0.25],
ColorFunction -> "FallColors",
PlotPoints -> 51,
AspectRatio -> Full,
PlotRange -> {{0, 1}, {-1, 1}},
Background -> None,
Frame -> True,
FrameTicks -> {None, Range[-1, 1, 0.25], None, None},
ImagePadding -> {{25, 2}, {5, 5}},
BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 12},
ImageSize -> {50, 400}];

Graphics[
{Inset[densityplot, {4, 4.3}, {Center, Center}, {400, 450} 0.02],
Inset[plotlegend, {8.8, 4.2}, {Center, Center}, {5, 40} 0.17],
Text[Style["Density Plot with Legend", Large], {5, 9.3}],
Text[Style["Legend", 14], {9.0, 8.3}]},
PlotRange -> {{0, 10}, {-.25, 10}},
Frame -> False,
ImageSize -> 500]
