Lotus In Rain by Rubixa-Seraph Lotus In Rain by Rubixa-Seraph
This is, of course, as the title says, a lotus flower.

I visited YuanMingYuan in Beijing, China.

Unfortunately, this is not one of the few places I visit often when I return to China, so I do not have much knowledge on its background history, nor do I know of the accepted English name for this area.

But every year, around July, people flock in to see the lotus flowers.

I waited so long for a good and sunny day, but in this one day, I only had the choice to go to one place. (There was another imperial garden I wanted to visit. Can't visit both in one day though...too hot by the time it hits 11am.)

Anyhow, I usually don't come here because lotus flowers really aren't something new to me. But hey, it's still a nice place for photography. I packed up the Pentax camera and brought with me the best lens for shooting close-ups. (It's pretty heavy because it's bigger than the regular-sized lens.)

So, enjoy all of these pictures.

I'm going to explain a little more about this flower in later pictures.
