[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lotus Blossom symbolizes the causality of the spiritual life.
Rising up from the mud of the swamp (the physical world, the body)
Growing up through its murky waters (the world of sensory desire & emotions)
Penetrating the air (the mental world of thoughts and ideas) and
Aspiring towards the light of the sun (the spiritual illumination, the Dharma)
It blossoms into a pure white flower (S. Pundarika is the white lotus).
It thus represents the Four Virtues of Nirvana personified by the Four Bodhisattvas
Leading the countless Bodhisattvas that spring up from the earth.
The Lotus Blossom symbolizes the insperability of the cause & effect, the provision & reality, and the source & manifestation of enlightenment.

Hello Tsilla,

Superbes couleurs , le coeur de cette fleur est lumineux comme un photophore.
Excellente présentation.
Bravo TFS.

Hello, Tsilla -
Lotuses are such beautiful subjects, and this one looks so sharp with blovely light and deep color. The moisture on the petals and leaves creates a nice fresh visual element. Great image.

Hi Tsilla,
A very sharp macro of this interesting flower adorned with glorious lighting. Beautiful contrasty colors of the flower itself against a dark geen BG.
The droplets are an enhancing bonus to the presentation.
Well done for this neat presentation.
My best regards,

Lotus are such a beautiful flowers and especially this one with its pink color. I've never seen one like this color. I like the droplets of water on the petals. Great dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
