After several days of unsuccessful storm chase with a friend, we finally witness this great sunset with a very intense golden light, five days ago. The sky here is made of decaying anvils coming from storms further at south.
Location: Agassiz, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Equipment: Nikon D90 + Nikkor 10-24mm + Tiffen Polarizer. Processing: Photomatix Pro 4.2 and Photoshop CS5 from 3 RAW exposures. Follow me on Facebook:WestCoastScapes
The first sunlight reaches the Bastei Bridge and the mountain tops of the Elbe Sandstone Massif on a wonderful morning in autumn (mountains from left to right: Papenstein, Gorisch, Lilienstein, Pfaffenstein, Königstein).
Hi everyone! Today I took this photograph in a beautiful garden in the Dandenongs (Cloudehill ), the gardens had a gorgeous pond with lotus flowers.. I couldn't resist taking a photo!
In Buddhism the pink lotus flower is the 'supreme' flower of Buddha.. (achievement of enlightenment) ..It has many different meanings in other cultures.. The lotus flower has a special symbolic meaning for me personally - as the lotus is seeded deep within muddy water, it begins to bloom above the water and flourishes into the most beautiful flower.. It has a deeper meaning to me.. I was once the seed that was beneath the murky water, struggling to see the light ahead .. Now, I have finally begun to grow as a person and flourish, overcoming inner battles and finding the beauty in life again... and no longer needing to look back to the past...
