Pond Lily Carpet


Another in my series from Royal Roads University. This pond is carpeted with lilies, and when we were there was so brightly lit I could barely stand to look at it from a darker patch of shade under some conifers. I like the way the light makes it all very abstract.

The top picture is a crop from one of the three brackets that went into producing the picture below.

    • Thanks Melinda. It was amazingly solid with the things. I can’t imagine that the pond is very healthy, but it is supporting them so perhaps it is doing fine.


      • Are these the same lilies as the bug-covered ones you posted previously? If so, I would concur that the pond’s probably not all that healthy. I don’t actually KNOW anything about ponds, though, so there’s a very slight possibility that I could be wrong.


      • Hi Melinda. The previous pond lily covered in bugs is in the fountain in front of the old house. It is the one with a lions head emitting water that shows in a few of the shots in the post from two days ago. http://wp.me/p1R4lY-4OR
        I know nothing of ponds either, but have to wonder if it has this much vegetation growing in it how far off being a marsh or peat bog this pond must be.
