A Time To Remember, No. 7, Water Lillies

Many years ago, one of my brothers used to grow water lillies as a hobby in a large pond. Here are a few close ups of some of those water lilly blossoms. The beauty of nature is beyond words.

those are beautiful! I've never shot photos of water lilies up close, but have often thought about it when in a canoe. You may inspire me.

Hi Tim. Thanks for posting such beautiful water lilly blossoms. I am missing American spring on this side of the earth.

Thanks, godknows. I love them, too.

sage, do try sometime. These flowers are worth it.

Thanks, kristi. God knew how to design all of creation to make and inspire beauty and appreciation.

Thanks, ginnie. These are from long ago but still lovely.

Thanks, paige, for coming by. Glad you enjoyed the photos.

Hi, hasan mubarak. No, he is not continuing it at this time at least not in this pond. But they are so beautiful.

Thanks, minka. These were taken years ago with a film SLR camera - the Canon EOS A2E. I currently take pictures with a digital SLR camera - the Canon EOS 30D - and a point and shoot digital camera - the Canon Powershot A80.

Thanks, san nakji. Glad you appreciate it.

Thanks, windowstomymind. Glad you enjoy the water lilly blossoms. You may be missing American spring; but you are seeing so many things that many of us probably will never get the chance to.
