Nelumbo nucifera – The Sacred Lotus is steeped in symbolism & meaning in both Hindu & Buddhist cultures. Much of the plant is edible, while the petals have a unique self cleaning system.

" Upon a heap of rubbish in the roadside ditch
Blooms a Lotus fragrant & pleasing"

Buddha, Dhammapada 58

Photography is my passion and my favorite subject is nature. I am particularly drawn to photographing landscapes, misty mornings, flowers and nature macros, as well as creating unique artworks using digital enhancement techniques.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills in South Australia and am extremely passionate about capturing the inspiring scenery that is to be found here.
