Theo Bosboom - Lily lake


In a small lake along the road from Halden (Norway) to Nössemark (Sweden), close to the Swedish border, I discovered this lake full of water lily pads on a summer evening early september. I had never seen so many close together and was very much attracted by the beautiful rythm of the lily pads and the horsetails. I spent hours photographing the plants in all kind of ways and in the end I was most happy with this overview. The reflected birch trees provided some extra depth to the scene.

    An intriguing and beautifull image, Theo. I keep looking what parts of it are above and under water.
