Photography – Water Lily Reflection

Water Lily-w

Life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see.

This photograph was taken at Butchart Gardens in Canada. It had been raining on and off that morning and the lighting was perfect for capturing reflections in the water.

Although the water lily was my initial focus, in my opinion, the most interesting subject in this image is the petals causing a ripple in the water. Photograph details: f/11; 1/60; ISO 200.

I discovered that shooting in Aperture Priority between f/8-f/11 at 1/60 or above and ISO 100- 400 produces the clearest, sharpest flower images.
