Do you remember the photo of the water lilies I took at San Diego’s Balboa Park? The one I used for the month of August in my 2013 photo calendar? Well, I went back to my memory card and looked if there were more photos good enough to share. I found a few, so here we go.

Here’s the whole patch where my water lilies came from. I like capturing reflections in the water. Unfortunately it’s not always easy to find a good angle to photograph the water lilies from to get their best shot, as well as an interesting building reflection, so it can be tricky. I think this photo came out OK.

Here’s the photo of the three pink water lilies on the right, the one I used in the calendar.

And here’s a photo of the single water lily closer to the front of the first picture.

This pond at Balboa Park also displays white water lilies but I think pink beats white any day when it comes to standing out on the green lily pads. What do you think?

      You’d better like that one! 😉
      I need to go back to my original photo for the single water lily and see if I have a little more room around it, so it fits in a circle for the coaster, without being cropped. That will be a fun project!

      I know you were asking about other photos I took that day, so here it is! There were some white water lilies too but they looked pretty bland compared to the pink ones.

  3. […] are lilypads I photographed at Balboa Park in San Diego this past summer. You can see gorgeous close-ups of these water lilies in this post. Still water is a great medium for reflections and you can’t go […]
