There's a lovely lilly pond that sits in the foothills of Yosemite National Park in the town of Oakhust a 20 minute jaunt down the road from where I live. The pond sits in the hills overlooking the town center. Being there is like being in a Garden of Eden. The pond is surrounded by are beautiful flowers and mountain landscaping lovingly tended by the owner of the property. The day I was there, everything seemed to have a special glow in the warm late spring sunlight. I must have taken a hundred photos of this pond and surroundings. I've done several paintings of this location and I treasure the memories of this place in the "precious pond" file section of my heart.
