This photo was taken at Hearst Castle, CA. I visited the castle not too long ago. I took lots of photos – of the rooms, libraries, art, and landscape. However, the most beautiful photo for me was were the lily pads. My grandmother lived about two hours away from Moscow, Russia. she lived in a small village that had a small lake between her village the village over. I used to love watching the lily pads and sometimes my uncle would take up in his boat for a closer look. Visiting the castle brought back good memories for which I am thankful.
