Leicester Botanic Gardens 4/7

Taken in the Harold Martin Botanic Gardens, Leicester during a camera club visit there on a fine August afternoon last year. Another shot along the side of the pond I featured yesterday.

This is lovely - I like how you framed the grass on the left and the lily's on the right...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I tried a couple of different compositions but liked this one the best.

a fine pond image reminding of Monet's garden in Giverny! I like the blue sky reflected in the water.
Brian Walbey: I've only ever seen pictures of Monet's garden but this probably does resemble a small corner of that.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I hope you've not hurt your head too much today.

Lovely close up of the 'green shoots and reflections.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, not the type of shot I normally take.
Very nice lilies, close to the fountain also, they are supposed to prefer still water, but seem to be thriving.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps the fountain isn't running at all times John.

The movement in the water at the back seems to add to the feeling of tranquility
Brian Walbey: Yes it was a nice quiet corner, just down the pond from yesterdays picture.
Superb capture of these water lilies Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
