The beauty of light pink waterlilies

I recently shared a few photos of waterlilies I stumbled upon and I realized I have a few more photos to share, so here we go. These waterlilies are all light pink, with a little hint of orange, creating a nice contrast with the bright green of the lily pads and the dark of the water.

The petals almost look like a bunch of little fingers sticking out of the water to say hi.

I like the way the shadows play with this waterlily, including the spiky dark shadows at the bottom left of the photo.

    • Thank you! The little ponds were trashed by a large group of drunk people last summer so the park took some time to put them back together. I go to Balboa Park on a regular basis so I hope the waterlilies will be in full bloom the next time I stop it.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
