Water lilies

Ambalapuzha, Kerala, South India

As the sun comes up, a single water lily reaches above the surface of a mirror-smooth pond. Its leaves form flat plates on the surface of the water. A large drop of dew has gathered in the centre of one leaf, giving an impression of coolness before the heat of the day builds up. A solitary green blade of grass provides a splash of contrast in an otherwise largely two-tone image.
