What a beautiful capture. It's so quiet, peaceful and still. How perfectly inviting with the bench, still waters, and the perfect reflection of such exquisite blooms right on the water's edge. I am smitten. I felt an instant calm wash over me as soon as I looked at this in full view. It's wonderful. Excellent composition in this most pleasing shot.

Warmest regards from the USA,

Mary Alice
