STOPS ALONG THE WAY

WATER LILIES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

22 Comments

There are many varieties of water lilies but I’ve only seen two types in our local waterways: white Fragrant Water Lilies and Yellow Pond lilies. Their large floating leaves make great runways for dragonflies. I tried to expose for the white of the flower when I took these photographs but I still had to make some highlight and shadow adjustments in Lightroom, to get the correct exposure and bring out more definition in the petals. I also removed some of the bugs that were carpeting the petals, they were a bit too “Hitchcock-like” in their natural state.

  3. One of my favorite subjects. Up north they were common in ponds, down in the Lowcountry not many at all.

  9. If only it were as easy to remove the real bugs from our lives when they are pestering us. Beautiful serene-looking water lilies.
