One afternoon while I was strolling past Chinaman’s Lagoon, I stopped to admire the blossoming water lilies. I was drawn to one specific lily that stood alone, perfectly highlighted by the warmth of the afternoon sun. I lined up my camera and pressed the shutter as a perfect pool of ripples formed beneath the flower, highlighting its petals as they combined to enlighten my visual senses. To me, this image catches the essence of the lagoon and the powerful effect that nature can have on the visual senses.
