Golden Lilly (lilly pads)
Posted By: little laker, 05-26-2007, 11:46 PM

I fell in love with the way that the quickly disappearing daylight looked in the waters ripples. So I took a short walk with the camera and saw these 2 lilly pads blending in

If I remember correctly I was using a 35+ year old Pentax Pentax-M 50mm F2 at the time.

I like it Stu.
so peaceful and serene with the way the fading light blends the pads with the water. A very good abstract.

Interesting lighting there, Stu.

I love the ripples and the light being reflected off the water surface,

U sure that these are not crocs beneath these so called lilly leaves?

Thank you very much, you sometimes just get lucky and see something out of the corner of your eye.

No worries roentarre, there are no wild crocs in British Columbia, although lots of leaches in that lake
