“Nature is not only what is visible to the eye – it also presents the inner pictures of the soul – the images on the reverse side of the eye.” (Edvard Munch)


When I explore the smaller details of nature with my camera I am in reality experiencing the moment fully and expressing that experience as an image.

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.  ~John Muir

This image was created while exploring the structure of this plant on a hillside  one morning. I take as much joy in these macro explorations as I do in my larger scale nature photographic treks.

“I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.” Confucian scholar Zhou Duny

I have mentioned before, I am drawn to photograph water lotus and water lilies flowers and leaves. In preparing some lotus images for a client I decided to do a little research on the water lotus and discovered some interesting facts:

The plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances its seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1300 years old recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China. It is often mistaken for a water lily. The lotus is a completely different plant unrelated to the water lily.

In has many uses for food. In Asian cultures the roots, leaves, and flowers are used in many recipes as garnishes, teas, medicines and soups, just to name a few.

From ancient times the lotus flower has been a divine symbol in many Asian traditions.
