It seems to be a "Manet" painting. Very nice!

I have just looked at the photo for a long time now, mowing the eyes from one white to another white flower - and sometimes stopping at the green. I get a good, warm feeling here.

oh, julie, just when i think you can't get any better you pull out a stunner like this!

Joan Elizabeth said...

Lilies are beautiful enough anyway ... add reflections like that and ... well they're just gorgeous. That light just shows why getting up early is good.

Eleonora said...

The foreground lily... poetic. Look at how the light plays on the petals in the reflection. Stunning

Have a great weekend
Ciao

The white on black is gorgeous, Julie!

Arija said...

Just lovely with the perfect reflection. Reminds me a little of the swan in Ogden Nash's Carnival of the Animals.

Arija said...

I just had another look, and as so often the reflection is even more beautiful than the subject itself.

Bill said...

That is a stunning photo, Julie. The light is just perfect.

This is an amazing photo. The water is so dark under the white lilies and green leaves. In the water are the reflections and what I first took to be a goldfish but after enlarging it is an old leaf. Wonderful

Out of the dark, into the light, hardly leaving a trace, yet able to provide life.

A wonderful photography indeed. Please have a weekend just alike.

Waterlily is one of my favorite flower! The flowers look so pure and the reflection is great! What a beauty!
