Photograph Notes:

You never know what you are going to stumble upon when scouting for images. I actually noticed this patch of flowers well off in the distance as I was making one final round through a park I had been to for many, many years. I had no idea Lotus grew here, it goes to show it is worthwhile revisiting familiar places at different times of the year. The light was intermittently good, but the real test of my patience was a persistent wind. I knew I wanted a flower in the foreground for this type of shot. Gust after gust kept that flower moving back and forth until a point I was about to give up and come back another day. It is usually right at the moment you pack your gear up that the wind stops. Fortunately this time, it was just shortly before.
