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.

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.

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?
