A little something to get your weekend off to a beautiful start. These gorgeous waterlilies were blooming in The Italian Garden at the Biltmore Estate back in late summer. You know me. I had to photograph them. And as usual, and need I say it again, and as usual, the sunlight drowned out the detail and the shadows were very dark, but of course, I had to try to bring it back to life. Not sure if I got there but here's the end result. ENJOY!


  1. As soon as I saw the photo, the word "purity" came into my head. The pads look like mosaics.

  2. ...lovely, lovely! It screams summer, which is fading fast around here. I will miss those sunny and warm days...
