why Water Lilies are twice as bright

img_1702dsc_0011

Water Lilies appear to contain fire at their center, they glow. These flowers are so different from other flowers we normally see. It took me awhile to figure out why. I blame it on the sun…and the water the flower floats upon. The flowers are lit up by the sun, twice. Once from above and then from below. The sunlight hits the water & that light is then reflected to the underside of the flower, causing Water Lilies to look like they contain fire.

which is just awesome.
