Anybody who has ever observed a lotus flower or water lily emerging from a muddy pond cannot fail to see the beauty of this exquisite plant.

These images, created over a period of 10 years at numerous locations and botanical gardens throughout the United States, attempt to capture the spiritual and beauty of this mystical flowers and its close cousin, the water lily. Enjoy!
