Quiet pond [Watery and Outdoor Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
On the way to Fontana Leisure Park in Clark on Sunday afternoon, I spotted this quiet pond in a golf course.  The still water, the greens and reflections were begging to be photographed.  I was happily clicking away when the security guard called my attention.  Apparently, taking photos was not allowed here because according to the guard, politicians, generals and famous personalities were playing golf and they didn't want their photos taken.  I suddenly felt like a paparazzi.:p


I assured the guard that I won't post their photos in Facebook.:p

The new header photo, a row of ancient acacias, is just across this pond.

Beautiful scenery. It would be a great place to have a picnic instead of playing golf!

Very lovely! I guess the place is better for family picnic than golf.
How does it feel being a temporary paparazzi? hehehe....

Thanks for dropping by, Luna. Until now, I still can't use Photoshop. I use an easier program, ACDSee. I just add water effect to the photo :)

Very nice. I love the header photo. Looks like a nice place to walk and read a book. Watch out for golf ball though!

Breathtaking. They make you feel guilty don't they? I feel like they are going to pat me down looking for my spy equipment.
