Enchanted is a vertical photo of the Lily pond in Balboa Park by San Diego photographer Stephen Bay. The artwork shows the pond through the balusters on a small bridge creating a keyhole view. The sun has just set and fills the sky with pink and magenta tones which reflects into the pond. Casa de Balboa and the House of Hospitality can be seen at the far end of the pond.

Enchanted | Balboa Park

This is a picture of the Lily Pond in front of the Botanical Building at Balboa Park. The gorgeous structure at the end of the pond is actually two buildings, Casa de Balboa on the left and the House of Hospitality on the right connected by a columned walkway.

I've been to Balboa Park many times and I've struggled to come up with a unique view of this scene. I walked around the pond several times and almost decided to go home without shooting before I thought to take a picture through the balusters on the bridge.
