Sky Watch Friday - Water lily pond sky

After a heavy thunderstorm yesterday evening,
the sky is well-behaved today!
The sun reflects pleasantly in one of the Danube's old arms in the Lobau Area.
Among water lilies!

Lying in the southeastern outskirts of Vienna, Lobau is a vast and pristine riverside forest and wetland area and is part of one of the last primeval forests of Europe.

Beautiful photo of the sun shining in the water amongst those water lilies. I'd love to visit your primeval forest. Sounds like a good place for a fairy tale.

I see the sun! Here, it is STILL raining! My roses are suffering! There is a robin that built a nest on the post---under the roof of our front porch. She is a very smart mother! It's perfectly dry there!
happy sunshine to you ~Maria

What a pleasant set of photos and they have a peaceful grace that shows through even here across the big pond. Those cloud photos in the previous post were awesome. Peace
