Werner Bollmann - Water Lily

Werner Bollmann - Water Lily

During my last visit in Sweden I found a lake full of pygmy water lilies (a subspecies of the common water lily). I was quite delighted, because I love these delicate creamy white flowers. To reduce the reflections I used a polarizer, which gave a nice contrast between the dark water and the blossom. I had to undress myself, because the water was very deep. So I waded into this lake, which I thought to be a very remote place in the woods. Good idea to keep on at least my underpants, because only minutes after I was in the pond, a group of hikers appeared at the shore, standing there amazed as well as amused.
