Topsy Turvy

(Panasonic Lumix FZ50 : f/4.0 at 1/640s , Focal length 88.8 mm. ISO 100)
Mirror Image

I love this snap for the very reason that it protrays simplicity so well. What was an ordinary snap to click, ended up surprisingly well. I was playing around with this picture when i rotated it upside down accidently. To my surprise it was very difficult to separate the real image from the reflection. Although, with a second look you would realise that the actual flower is much brighter, the confluence of the sunlight on the still green water protrays a wonderful mirage like feeling. I also like the way the gentle morning rays of the sun fade out diagonally across the photo..almost as if the sun was shining its spotlight on this very beautiful flower.
