Something calm and soothing for your weekend respite on this first weekend of autumn: lily pads and a tiny waterfall by some airplane plants at Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior, Arizona.
I love the spatial disparity in this photo. The water level appears lower than the lilies, making them seem to float above the water level, since there are no light reflections in front of the pads connecting the plane of the water to the front section.
