Transcendent Elegance by acutely Transcendent Elegance by acutely
I captured this beautiful Lotus at the Allerton Gardens in Kauai [link]

The Lotus flower has a lot of powerful symbolism in many different cultures, including a lot of spiritual significance. The plant has its roots deep in the soil under water. The long, cylindrical stalk passes through the water and rises above the water's surface. The mud in which the lotus roots grow represents material life, while the water through which the stalk passes represents the astral world. When the plant reaches the surface of the water and opens its bud to the sun, it represents spiritual being. [link]
