The Holy Lotus flower almost in full bloom – I photographed this magnificent specimen in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    Not sure if the background was edited or photographed that way, but it is lovely. That and the lighting really make this beautiful flower glow!
