It’s surprising how many Stately Home gardens include a lake or pond. And where there is water in a landscaped environment, Water Lilies are likely to be found. No flowers at this time of the year, but the leaves themselves are often photogenic.
This is the fifth post to feature Water Lily leaves, the others can be viewed by clicking here: that will display the opening paragraphs of the previous posts on the subject.
I find the combination of colour, and the right light, very attractive. Processing with a gentle tweak from Topaz Clean and Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 helps to sharpen the edges, add interest to the leaves, at the same time as smoothing the water.
