Watery Wednesday #39

It's that time of the week! Are you ready? LET'S GET WET!


Thought I should add, this is a camelia that fell from one of the camelia trees along the edge of the stream that runs through Descanso Gardens. I have quite a number of variations of shots like these because I think they're just beautiful.

Did someone toss a rose blossom into the water? Beautiful colour!

Greyscale Territory said...

O how beautiful! The water creates a silken softness behind the flower!

ellievellie said...

Is it a flower that lives in the water or a flower that fall in a stream? Water is so clear - that picture smells fresh - roses and running water...

Leora said...

Love the detail of all the wet. Looks like silk, the water. And the pink makes the water even more lovely.

Ebie said...

Is is camelia or rose? The color contrast is just beautiful.

Kathy said...

Flower on ice is what this very creative shot reminds me of.

The water looks so slickery in this photo - like mineral oil flowing over the rocks. How'd you do that?

Lovely shot! I have to tell you I look for watery shots everywhere and someday I'll find the gorgeous ones like you do. :)

The Right Blue said...

Well, that's just pretty. Very nice work. (And who knows, maybe that Camellia will 'keep' better in that cold water.)

Ian Sengco said...

This is splendid! I can't believe all the amazing things you find to photograph! You must live in a gorgeous place. CA right?
Also, I'm considering buying a DSLR and was wondering what camera you use?

Tammie Lee said...

Your image is so so lovely!

Maria Berg said...

Water and the pink -like it, MB

Mariz said...

That rushing water was the perfect backdrop for this beautiful flower.

Mine's up (at MixPix). Have a great day!

Regina said...

Wow. It's a beautiful creation. Really great. Perfect!

hip chick said...

Beautiful. I love the way you've composed that photo.

Ginger said...

This is an awesome shot. Absolutely beautiful!

happyone said...

Picture Perfect!!

mamapippas said...

That's a very wonderful photo shoot !

srp said...

It looks so clear and glassy, as if the leaves are encased in acrylic or glass... lovely.

At the Norfolk Botanical Gardens they have a large camellia garden with over 1200 plants. It is so nice because here they bloom in winter.. February.. so we have color even then.

Jew Wishes said...

What a lovely photo...so vibrant and beautiful.

amanda said...

I knew the minute I saw the beautiful Camellia it was Descanso! 2sweet the lighting is just gorgeous here, I am pretty sure I know where this is there is a little stream that runs over by the edge of the Camellia trees but it can be quite dim did you use reflectors? I really really love the lighting for this and the reflection on the water is gorgeous.

ROSIDAH said...

Magnificent shot! I really love it. Thank you for another great WW. Have a wonderful day, everyone :)

Sara Chapman said...

I love how you get that amazingly clear surface. Wonderful.

Arija said...

A very romantic shot...flowers flowing on water, carrying thoughts of love with them to greet the beloved down stream....ah to be young again...

Kerslyn said...

I love it, and yes, I agree with Arija, it's romantic. Anyway, my first entry in this meme is up though late for a day. :-)

Karen said...

One word ...

BEAUTIFUL !!! :-)

" When I write or share something about one of my friends in a posting, I always make sure I send them a copy of it, so they know what was said about them. Today I included information about you and your blog site in my posting, so I thought I should let you know about it as well."

The above paragraph is the first paragraph in an email I sent out today, to all of the owners of blogs whom host "theme days", that I could find email addresses for. But I was unable to find an email address on your blog so that I could include you in the email. The rest of the email is what I posted today on our blog. Go to: www.xanga.com/thehousethatlovebuilt to read it for yourself.

Hopefully, it will then clarify of all of this for you ;-}
