Silver (or Gold) - Plated Water Lillys

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 15 October 2017 in Plant & Nature.

Enjoying my time at nearby Lake Sammamish last week, I was trying to take advantage of reflections and light that the early evening sun was providing.
I was also really intrigued with the visual story that the stems and lilly pads were providing. The water was so still that visually minimizing a group of the pads and stems really provided an interesting semi-abstract appearance - at least to me..
Finally, the reflection off the wet Lilly Pads seemed to change their color from green to gold or silver...i couldn't be sure which! But I certainly enjoyed the scene! I hope you enjoy.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues. The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
