Be Cool

I must admit that until the comments from my friends on my earlier post today, I had no idea how extreme temperatures were on the east coast.

 

(Whaddya live in a cave? Obviously I do.)

 

Had I known, caring sort that I am, I would have made every effort to relieve the stress and anxiety that this type of heat is known to produce. I've been sloshing around in the lake for the last few days with the idea of macros for these lilies (they may follow), but the distress readily apparent in the tone of those comments made me reconsider. Therefore, sacrificing that bit of artistic selfishness for these photos which I trust will have a calming, cooling effect on you all. {To further that effect, you might be interested in knowing it is currently 80F, a slight breeze from the southeast, the water temperature 72F. Most of you have seen the clarity of the water and the sandy bottom in previous photos....it remains thus.}

 

Hopefully, this will be helpful for you dear, dear, suffering friends, making you all much more comfortable and at ease. Therapeutic... As for me, I believe I'll go for a pre-supper dip...

 

(By the way, if one hangs around the lilies too much, does he become a Lilliputian?)

 

[Large probably a bit cooler...]
