The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose has a lovely water lily pond that makes for great photos. I captured this particular shot as the light was dying at the end of a summer day. It was hitting this water lily at a perfect angle. The water around it was still and the colors vibrant and I decided to document the moment.
