Tulip Gold ~
Lotus in Bloom ~ I love lotuses, and don't ofen get to see them. I liked this one with both the bloom and the seed pods in one shot. I played with filters a bit for a more painterly effect.
~ After a brief rain shower, the sun shone through the clouds, and lit up this beautiful yellow rose. It's petals looked almost transparent in the sun, giving it a very delicate look.
