In downtown Phoenix, there is a beautiful, tranquil place known as the Japanese Friendship Garden. The first time I visited there, I found these lovely water lilies nearby the shore of the lake. After going a bit off the path, I got to get some great closeups of them, but in the end I liked the composition of this one the best.
