It's A New Day - It's A New Year..........



~ Henley Beach Jetty ~

That magical time of the morning
just before the sun peeks it's face over the horizon
never ceases to amaze me!

A palette of multi layered colours
from silky blue to violet to turquoise to soft pink
...................................

And for my photo of the year

~ Glistening pearls atop the sacred lotus leaves ~

Great shot from under the jetty Dianne - a wonderful blend of soft muted tones in the sky and water against the solid dark angles of the jetty structure. As for the lotus shot - leaves me breathless!

Oh I love both images Dianne, but the reflections and the pearl drops on the Lotus leaves are exquisite. A dream of a shot.

Dianne said...

your photos are always so lovingly composed
it really comes out in the top shot

and I love the pelican in the previous post
they're such fun creatures

Happy New Year

I hope you have a good new year!

Jack said...

Very nice. They provide a good start to the year. The lotus plants are wonderful.

Jilly said...

Wonderful! The lotus is such a beautiful plant. We have one at a Menton garden - the Serre de la Madone - you've captured its beauty so well. Love it in your header too.

Thanks for your visit and a Very Happy New Year to you Dianne. x
