Peter, these are so beautiful! My wife wants a pond so she can try to grow some.
I especially like photo number 7. Awesome!

Thanks for viewing and giving comments.I like the lotus very much. The flowers are beautiful. The beautiful pinkish whitepetals spread out symmetrically in all direction, providing different possibilities for shooting. Thelongitudinal lines on petals give substance to the petals but to have them revealed in shots is a real challenge. We Chinese like the lotus very much for lots of reasons, e.g. it comes from the mud but its purity and pulchritude run contrary to the mud; itwithstands bad weather;thescent of its flowers is refreshing andit lives its life for our benefit - the seeds and the root as food; the casementfor housing seeds for medicinal purposes andthe stem formaking utensils.

Thanks for viewing and giving comments. Peter
