Luscious Lotus!

The lotus are filling the pond behind my gardens and are numbering about 50 in bloom at one time.  Hard to convey the full sense of the flowers swaying in the gentle breeze, glowing in all types of light, and changing hues depending upon the time of day, the age of the flower, and the amount of light.  I photograph them early in the morning, when the light is soft, or late in the afternoon for the intensity of back lighting.  This pond will be on the Garden Conservancy tour on July 31st, 10-4, if you are in the Ithaca area.
