Pond lilies

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 14 February 2019 in Plant & Nature.

I have now come to the end of posting all the images that I have submitted for club competition evenings over the past five years! I am going to end the week with two images that I have kept in my "Maybe" folder, and then from next week will be posting from the balance of my collection. From next week I will not be posting every weekday, like I am at present. So - Maybe image number one - this one was taken at a local winery. Simple shot of some lilies in one of the ponds on the estate. Completely wrong time of day - midday, but again I like the tones and contrast.

I don't think these are lilies Rob. They are Aponogeton, a lovely and rather strange water plant with its unusual shaped flowers. We have some and the water snails just love them. Beautiful capture.
Sorry to hear you won't be posting so much

Nothing wrong with shooting in the middle of the day. There are still plenty of colours and interesting things to photograph. You used the light and colours beautifully in this photo.
