This is my "signature" image, used on my business cards and my parsonsprints.com web site. I had this image in mind (or something like it) for about a year. The location is at the end of Stocker Pond, and I reside on this pond further up the shore. So I had the owner whose shoreline had the most lilies call me when they peaked. I was in water up above my knees with the tripod sinking in the mud. The wide angle lens was not more than two feet from the surface of the water to take this pictue.
