Once upon a lily...




He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8

Thank you. :)
Would you believe this was processed entirely with Picasa? Some sharpening, saturation and focal B&W.

Yup... a very good shot. You managed to capture the "serenity" of the lone lotus in its surroundings. Have it pasted on my desktop with sky-blue background. It has a calming effect =D

I'm glad to be of service. :)
It looks serene, but I was melting under the blazing noonday sun as I took this shot.

Correction:
It's a water lily, not a lotus. Sorry for the misidentification.

Lina said...

Ahhh... there are some who sow... while some will reap =D

ok... Water Lily it will be. Now I know the difference.

It was pointed out to me that a water lily and a lotus are not the same. I later found out that one of the easiest way to tell the difference is to look at the leaves, since the flowers look deceptively similar. Lily leaves rest on the water surface whereas lotus leaves extend on stems above the water. Cool huh?
