Lily pads found in the morning create the same illusion Claude Monet (1840 - 1926) painted in Giverny, France. While studying his garden he discovered the light in the early morning gave the water and lilies the right colors he was looking for. An early riser he painted every morning from his boat just because of the light. It was his driving force (other than poverty).
Captured here on a local pond the cobalt blue water has a slight wave. You can see rounded lily pad leaves floating with one solitary white blossom and several buds ready to open.
