The shot was taken at Kingsley pond in Hampshire, UK.

lily, pond, pad, nature

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Gorgeous MARK! Lilies on ponds seem to evoke an Eastern feel . Beautiful shot.,

  • Thank you Angie. This pond used to be covered in these but the fishermen/women complained . They kept snagging their lines. There are only a few patches left now. Shame really they looked amazing when they were all in bloom.

    lovely shot Mark, l really love water lilies , seem to be a shortage in ponds and l haven’t seen a frog for years

  • Thanks Lynn, come to think of it I haven’t seen a frog for years either. Perhaps they are in decline like so much of natures wildlife.
