Kauai Water Lilly
Photograph by Pam Nelson
The island of Kauai is known as, “The Garden Isle” for it’s lush hillsides and valleys carpeted in life. This beautiful purple water lily captured on Kauai is a good representation of the bursts of color seen all around the island. Flowers like this cover resort-side landscaping and backyards, while more tropical Hawaiian flowers cover the the land all around.
We enjoy this picture for its sense of motion. Even though it is a still shot, the water droplets sliding down petals and the bright yellow stamens give us an active feeling.Kauai Water Lilly,
