Today's Flower - A Water Lily


This one was not blooming in Norway in the middle of winter. I have just been on a trip to my hard disks.

For en blomst, og for et bilde Rune.

... :-) men skjøner jo den ikke blomstrer i januar da, selv ikke i Bergen. Rundt sankthans tenker jeg, da kommer den hit i alle fall. På vei til hytta vår passerer vi et vann der disse gror, og jeg husker i min barndom vi stoppet der, prøvde å fange noen på tur til hytta og bestemor som på selveste sankthansaften hadde bursdag.

I had to do a double take there, as i whizzed past your caption, I couldn't believe my eyes, a Waterlily in January in Norway? How beautiful it is, roll on summer ..Eh ?

Maria said...

Are you also wishing for summer? Today I also posted photos from last year's summer vacations...
The winter simply lasts too long in our hemisphere...
Have a nice week and thanks for sharing your beautiful water lily blooming on your hard disc!

Maria said...

LOL, in 2007! I must inspect my hard disc too, maybe there are some surprises, too?

Rune: I understand, a beautiful capture from past times. We have been having a Norway winter in NE Ohio.

Vakkert!
Stemningsfullt!
Det har alltid vært noe mystisk over vannliljer synes jeg. Da jeg var liten hadde jeg så lyst på en båt slik at jeg kunne ro ut og plukke dem i tjernet der jeg bodde.
Det tjernet var bunnløst og vi unger ble skremt av de voksne for å holde oss unna. Det var ikke måte på hvor mange som hadde druknet der.
Var du i båt da du tok dette flotte bildet, eller vokste de helt i vannkanten?

Nå kan du komme inn og stemme på Fotosafari logo inne hos meg:)

I love water lilies!!

Knowing more or less is not the trick. The trick Rune is, when you click, you click with your body...and soul, that makes it!
Wonderful close up here, congratulations!

I think I should take a trip through my archives. The water lily is very appealing!

Jeni said...

Blooming in the pond or in the hard drive of your computer -it matters not as it is still a beautiful picture!

Arija said...

A beautiful Waterlily, like Monet,I too adore them.

Carletta said...

Monet - exact feel of this!
No shame coming from hard disk territory. :)

Michele said...

Ah, such a sweet photo! I do like it very much!

Barbara Martin said...

Here I thought there had been a warm spell of weather...lovely all the same, and refreshing for the time of year.
