In the strangest places!! This is in a local SEWAGE LAGOON, which is an open "pond" type place where they treat it.(at least I think they treat it)..I crawled through the fence and found the most beautiful flowers etc...No, it didn't stink.

Stunning! I agree, a winner! And ..... only you :) - I don't know of anyone else that would go wading through.....a sewage lagoon for the shot. It was worth it though, it's so beautiful! So many possible titles come to mind though...........:) -K

Lovely image Carolyn! Maybe they're using the natural water treatment methods? I've seen a few stories on PBS about these natural bogs being used to purify water. Regardless Marcie is probably right about them getting plenty of nutriants :0)

Thanks Murry and Camm!
That's probably what they're doing Murry. I never saw these until we moved to Oklahoma, but I'm sure they exist other places. I know when they were selling the motel that this lagoon is in back of, they had a heck of a time explaining it to the out of staters. LOL

Very striking and beautiful, Carolyn.
Love the translucent petals, the rich color of leaf and background, the off center placement and the lovely glow.
Outstanding work!
