Gorgeous!! We have to drive for hours to find anything like this.
they are gorgeous.
Beautiful colour and waterlilies are one of my favourite flowers. I have tried painting them in watercolour but I find them difficult. Monet has perfected them!
Rosie, I have often found red flowers especially difficult both in painting and in photography. With these water lilies I zoomed them in from a distance so actually had no idea how they would come out until I got them up on the computer screen at home. They are 'straight out of the camera' shots, though - no editing.
I lost all my waterlilies in the pond a couple of years ago. I have just replaced them this year. I love waterlilies. I have never seen red ones in the wild before.
Graham, I'm not sure these can be said to be "in the wild" either, as they grow in the city centre. As a child, I remember being told that red water lilies (in Sweden) only grew in a special lake in Tiveden, a national park further north in the same county where I still live. Whether ours here have come here "naturally" or been planted, I don't know. But as far as I can remember, I think they've been growing in the river by the town park for as long as I've lived here (30+ years).
Beautiful - they almost look pink from here.
