Belle image, bien travaillée, qui fait écho à mon image du jour d'hier - bien moins sophistiquée. Bravo !

Stunning JM! The lily looks almost luminous and the deep green background shows it up perfectly.

It is lovely. The darkness of the water almost makes me wonder what else is down there... :)

The lilly appears to float in your photo, nearly impossible to discern the water line... beautiful focus.

Bises,

Waterlilies are always so photogenic. I miss that fact that they no longer flower in my pond .. I think the tree grew and shaded the pond too much.

Gunn said...

Wow, that is something to aim for....
Just beautiful!

Sharon said...
