I took this picture this afternoon during my daily bike trip.

“Nymphaea Almost Black” on the Lake to Sijsele 6 km of Bruges

The Lake is a wonderful place for fishermen

I took this picture the same day or my previous picture.

The water lily Almost Black is a semi-double (40-number petals), head-shaped flower that looks beautiful on the water. The petals are nicely rounded and have a satiny sheen that immediately reminds of the tropical father. The older the flower, the darker it becomes and the more economical. The flower is about 10 to 15 cm in size and has a light, but very pleasant smell. She can also be used as a cut flower, sunbathing in a bowl.

I hope that you enjoy it

Hi John

Nice repetition of the water lilies with many bearing lilac flowers in the distance and bottom left corner. Good reflections of the clouds, with excellent saturation and sharpness. Tfs!

Hello dear John,
Another topclass landscape capture in your gallery; also taken with perfect pov and sharpness.
Interesting and usefull notes.
TFS and best regards

Hallo John,
De voorgrond wordt goed gevuld door de vele waterplanten en de waterlelies. Zelfs in de schaduw is hun paarse kleur nog goed zichtbaar.
Verder in het meer worden de bomen en de wolken mooi weerspiegeld.
Een goede compositie met de overhangende takken en de dunne strook groen tussen lucht en water.
Heerlijke witte wolkjes in de lucht.
Vele groeten, Paul

It seems to be a calm place. Beautiful colors and reflections and excellent sharpness too.

Warm regards

Hallo John,
Wat een schitterend landschap. De groene rij bomen wordt door een mooi, helder licht beschenen, de witte wolken in de blauwe lucht hebben prachtige vormen en worden mooi weerspiegeld in het kalme water. Heel mooi fotowerk.

Hello John, another lovely view of this calm lake with the water lilies. Splendid reflections. Beautiful water lilies.
Kind regards Malgo

Hi John,

You are a specialist with the reflections on the water. The point of view is showing the details if the tress, of the reflections and of the clouds. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.


Hello John,
A pretty lake, depicted in a pretty photo. I like following the shoreline and observing the reflections in this photo.

Hi John,
Great photo with splendid colors and so lovely water reflections, well framed between water and vegetation, tfs.

Hello John,
The small and nicely shaped clouds are beautifully reflected in the calm water, along with the trees on the far side. The water lilies frame the lower part of the view well, and at the top you made good use of the overhanging branches. Good contrasts and fine clarity also make the photo enjoyable.
Kind regards,

Witaj John!
Beautiful lake, wonderful view.
Excellent POV and composition.
I like reflection and colors.
Well done.
Nice day.

Hello John,
Thanks for providing us with another opportunity to appreciate this serene and peaceful landscape. The composition is well framed and has an agreeable balance to it. Perfectly exposed with beautifully rendered natural colours and superb clarity. The reflections of the clouds in the slightly rippling waters are a true delight.

Bonjour John,

Quel beau paysage. Le lac fait oeuvre de miroir pour ce beau ciel remplit de nuages blancs comme de la neige. On se sent plus calme, juste en regardant cette photo.

Hello John,

The water lilies, nestling in the shade of the f/g make a very good contrast with the white, fluffy clouds, reflected in the water! It fact, it's a beautifully, peaceful scene, some light, some shade, and all shown in duplicate from the reflected images.

It's a perfect, quiet spot for fishermen. I cannot imagine anything breaking the calm!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)
We have just divided the water lilies on our pond. they were covering almost the entire surface!

Hi John,
Wonderful place, so serene and calm atmosphere,beautiful scenery to calm down, really,nice tones of green...
Best regards

Hi John
A very well composed and exposed image with wonderful light, great colour and beautiful mirror reflections. I particularly like the natural framing...

Best regards

Hi John,
this one is a really beautiful place for to relaxing and fishing, indeed.
And we can enjoy its quiet atmosphere and its beauty thanks to your excellent and bucolic composition.
You managed efficiently the light and colors, and the white clouds on the blue sky are a great aesthetical complement.
Well done, my friend.
Kind regards,

Hello, John!

Beautiful deep blue sky and its reflection on the calm water, making a great contrast with the green vegetation! I also like the dark leaves in the foreground framing the image and giving it very good depth! Wonderful composition!
