About this Series, Monday, December 30th,
This series was immediately after the beach series. Since that one was so tough, I felt I could finally give those water lilies in the full and bright sunlinght a try. No palm tree to give even a square inch of shade.
I had looked at those water lilies in a huge clay pot many times, I had also tried to take a picture of my wife's SKX015K there once. The watch had disappeared into the pot and I had to grab deep into the not very clear water, touching all sort of unknown glibbery things until I found the watch near the bottom of the large vase. I have quite a respect of grabbing for things in the water, since my experience on a golf course in Swindon, UK once. I thought I saw my ball near the shore of a water hazard and tried to catch it. To my utmost scare, that "golf ball" was a toad!
Noon sun light and a Black Dial
Are probably not the best partners for a great photo series. I tried my best to use natural resources to avoid glare on the crystal. Actually I was quite surprised by the outcome. Those water lily leaves with their nice phloem "vessels" made up for some nice effects.
