Water Lilies is a classic motif often found in controlled nature, Claude Monet was fond of painting controlled nature: his own gardens in Giverny, with its water lilies, pond and bridge. I came across this little pond with Water Lilies in Svinkløv Dune plantation in Northern Jutland, Denmark last month. The noon sunlight was rather harsh and I used leafs in the foreground to soften the light and make the Lilies stand out.
