Lilies by the Waterfall

2010 07 28 Lilies and waterfall 2

My lover has gone down to his garden,
       to the beds of spices,
       to browse in the gardens
       and to gather lilies.

~Song of Solomon 6:2~

See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor
was dressed like one of these.

~ Matthew 6:28-29 ~

What wonderful, cooling pictures! And I love the angle you got on those lilies!!

Sandra said...

your lilies are prettier than my lillies. great minds think alike. I love the way you took it so we could see the stamens hanging down.

Great lillies nice colour and good angles and composition. By the way your Nikon Coolpix does have f stops check your manual you should have an aperture priority setting on your dial. It's usual an A. The S is for shutter speed priority. There will be an auto, portrait, macro and landscape i think, as well as S and A. Most point and clicks have these facilities now. Hope you can find them. regards Kev

@Pictureit: Thanks for your comment. My Coolpix (4600) does not have any A or S on the dial. There is however on one submenu a choice of Exp+/-. I had forgotten about that. I have so far never really experimented with anything that goes beyond just point-and-shoot. I have no tripod and don't like to carry stuff around (no car so always on foot).

Beautiful lilies by the waterfall, the fragrance must be delightful.

The lilies are absolutely beautiful, the orange on white is a color I haven't seen before. Great shots, my favorite is the one of the lilies with the water in the background.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
