Uncertain Lilly Pad

Uploaded: June 23, 2003 05:58:56


Shot at Caddo Lake near Uncertain, Texas. Late afternoon exposure 1/250, f/13 at 149mm. Rainy and windy a large bubble of water gets a free ride.

I love the way water collects in the centers of lily pads! Like the simplicity of the shot! Take care, Murry! #124263

Claudia Kuhn level-classic May 26, 2019

Nice composition. I like the circle of water on the circular lily pad. It certainly made a good picture! #124308

Mette Vendelboe Allison level-classic May 26, 2019

Very good and interesting picture. I like the centered composition and lighting! #124317

Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

I could have sworn I posted a reply earlier but I guess it's another senior moment. Thanks, Char, Gene, Carolyn, Ellen, Dolores, Claudia and Mette.

I thought the centered lilly pad was okay since the water ball was a bit off center. It was fun to watch the water roll around on the lilly pad like a ball bearing until the wind would tip it up far enough to drain. Then another gust would fill it up again and it would play roller ball for a few minutes. You can see it doesn't take much to entertain me :0) LOL, Ellen on your mis-spelling! #124346
