Lily pads and a photoshoot




I went on a photo shoot tonite with a group of really fun people. We met in Juanita Park in Kirkland, WA. The park runs along side of Lake Washington. We walked out on the bridge to take various photos. Since everyone seemed to have cameras that cost more than most cars, and were taking photos of birds miles away, I concentrated on the beauty below me in the water. (With my Canon Powershot sx210). I just love the colors. The greens, bright oranges, and browns. I feel so lucky to have taken these shots,  just as I took the photos, it started to rain. Not a drizzle but bucketfuls of rain plummeting down on us.

I ran back to the car and felt so grateful, to have seen these Lily pads. I think they are magical, I can almost see the fairies living among them.

What fun - we have to pretend it's summer even if our weather says otherwise! The colors are glorious.
