  1. The checkered lily is cool, Benni. That's a lovely shot.

    The fishing shot is heartwarming. I can just imagine the stories about the one that got away.

    Pretty beach scene and umbrella.

    1. Thank you, Mitch, you know it's funny, I thought it was "chequered" lily too, but google said "checkered". Next time I will stick with my first instinct.

    1. Thank you, Sophie. It took me forever to get the people under the umbrella to move. Then I had to crop their feet out.

  8. Very beautiful photos, Benni! Each one has its beauty and its particular colours. The fishing scene could be the begining of a story that I would love to read and the third, well, is my favourite...
