Lotus at Green Spring Gardens

This is our entry in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Take New Photos – Any topic.

We visited Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia, today to see how the flowers were faring after our hot spell of weather.  We found that the lotus plants in the large pond were thriving, although many had progressed to the seed pod stage.  The lotus flower in the photo is beginning to deteriorate, but the petals are still beautiful.

This photo was taken on August 15, 2019. Specs are:

Fuji X100T, ISO 200, f/2.5, 1/250 sec, 19mm
