Det første der var ekstra nydelig, så stille vann og flotte speilinger du har fanget der :) Ha en fin søndag!

Bim sa...

These are great. I've never seen water lilies like this!

RuneE sa...

Begge var fine, men jeg er enig med min navnebror - det første her var noe av det beste jeg har sett på lang tid. Grønn av misunnelse!!

PS Takk for kommentaren! Jeg har ikke sett reklamen, men teksten var faktisk en bevisst vri på det gamle engelske ordspråket:"Watching paint dry" :-)

Beautiful pictures, Valkyrien.
In the Netherlands we make a differense between the waterlilly (Nymphaea)and a yellow waterlilly (Nuphar lutea). We would call the one at your pictures yellow waterlilly. In Dutch: gele plomp. :-)

De er litt merkelige disse blomstene, nesten som et atomkraftverk eller vulkan.

Gunilla sa...

Vilka fina bilder. Det ser ut som om vattnet är lite segt.
Är det frökapslarna som sticker upp eller?

Ha en fortsatt fin Söndag

So unique!

Arija sa...

By your pictures today, you look to be drowning in your vacation shots...only 1,000? I took 300 in one day alone. Norwayis so very beautiful, i look forward to the glories you will show us.

With you featuring my favourite flower on your header told me we had things in common even when I knew nothing else about you except for the beauty of your photographs.
Although it is traumatic to loose everything in a fire, it is cleansing as well and teaches us that ultimately we have to leave it all behind anyway. Somehow this makes it easier to go when we get the call

I love how you have transformed the lilies into Juliet slowly sinking into a drowning dream or a message in a bottle.

George sa...

Your first picture is a work of art. I've seem many water lilies, but never any as interesting as these.
