Peak Lotus Blooming at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Washington, DC

Flowers, Nature, Photography

Lotus and water lily are one of my favorites to photograph. I went back to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens yesterday morning (July 11). Unlike two weeks when I went there for the first time this year, the lotuses were blooming beautifully, I would say it’s near peak blooming stage if not at peaking already, and there were many visitors. But the visitors were spread out pretty good and everyone wore face mask so I felt pretty safe. I photographed for almost two yours and was sweat out good before I called quit.

  1. Beautiful series, my favourite (if I was only allowed to pick one) no.2.
    But the colours and detail of all images is a gift for the eyes.
