[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I never know and never see a river full of pink water lilies like this place. I took a morning ride and saw this wonderful place.
Each and every of them is indeed very beautiful. since this is an irrigation canal i know within a month or two it will be flooded. Then there will be no more for the time being. The people/farmers dont find it useful to them. It also does not contribute income to them, so it not a beauty either.
anyway it is a place that I would come and enjoy the pink beauty here.

Hello Foozi,
Nice to see where this beautiful water lily grows!
A well composed view of the river taken with a great palm tree BG, with the trees reflected in the water that is dotted with these striking water lilies.
Very nice! Must have great insect life, especially dragonflies.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hi Foozi,

Your title is perfect. This is a scene I would love to see for myself. These pink lilies are beautiful. I love your pov so we can look up the canal. Beautiful palm trees too. It looks like such a secluded spot but the background proves that it is quite close to industry.


hello foozi,
nice capture, the water lily is a very good flower for taking pictures, the lush greenery looks sooting , nice composition and fine pov,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hi Foozi,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The palm trees and the vegetation are framing well the river. The point of view takes our eyes toward the power line which is giving depth to the photo. The overcat sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Foozi,
A well balanced photo [ pity about the power lines but I know there is not much one can do about that]. Nice depth and the river with its pink water lillies leads one into the photo.
