invisible current

"The sky was a midnight-blue, like warm, deep, blue water, and the moon seemed to lie on it like a water-lily, floating forward with an invisible current."
~ Willa Cather ~

Lovely photo and evocative quote to go with it.

That's a good sized sailboat...I don't recall ever seeing lillypads in the bodies of water around here that are large enough to accomodate a boat so large, at least not so close to them. Unusual and wonderful shot.

This is just beautiful - the lily pads add a really magical quality.

Thank you. I'm particularly fond of this one. So much so that I'm entering it into the Fine Arts section of our County Fair later this month. :-)

Laurie, it's a self-made pond that is probably too small for a boat this size. However, it resides in their backyard so I'm guessing the people don't mind.
