Nelumbo nucifera is known by a number of common names, including blue lotus, Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, and sacred water-lily. Botanically, Nelumbo nucifera (Gaertn.) may also be referred to by its former names, Nelumbium speciosum (Wild.) or Nymphaea nelumbo. This plant is an aquatic perennial, but if its seeds are preserved under favorable circumstances, they may remain viable for many years.

In Ancient Egypt, Nelumbo nucifera was unknown, being introduced only at the time of the Persian invasions, late in ancient Egyptian history. The ancient Egyptians venerated the blue water-lily, Nymphaea caerulea, which was sometimes known as the "blue lotus" or "sacred lotus".

La serenità, la buona coscienza, la lieta azione, la fiducia nel futuro, dipendono [..] dal fatto che si sappia tanto bene dimenticare al tempo giusto, quanto ricordare al tempo giusto.

Oblivion

 

The serenity, the good conscience, the pleased action, the trust in the future, they depend [..] from the fact that is known so much good to forget to the correct time, whether to remember to the correct time.

 

(F. Nietzsche, Old-fashioned considerations)

  

Die Indische Lotosblume "Nelumbo nucifera“ ist eine Ausläufer bildende, ausdauernde krautige Wasserpflanze. Ihre Blattstiele sind 2 m oder mehr lang.

Die runde Blattspreite weist einen Durchmesser von 60 cm oder mehr auf.

Die Blätter der Indischen Lotosblume „sind nicht benetzbar und selbstreinigend. Dieses Phänomen wird als „Lotos-Effekt“ bezeichnet.

Another shot of the heart of lotus. Even the same of kind of lotus never looks same. Time, light...etc. many factors can influence how lotus flowers look like. This lotus can safely be said pink.

My lotus set is here.

ハス(蓮) Nelumbo nucifera

Not eyes, but the seed "pod" of the American Lotus. After drying and after the seeds fall out, it becomes hard and brown; it's often used in dry flower arrangements. The American Lotus, a member of the water-lily family is a native wildflower found in Michigan. It has huge 4-8 inch blooms that are projected above the water on 1-2 foot stalks. Their huge leaves can measure up to 2 feet across.

Another attempt to shoot wild Lily pads from a moving boat. It's amazing how fast they are passing, even through an ultra wide-angle lens a few inches above the surface. Because the destination happened to be somewhere else, there was just one opportunity to shoot them properly. I managed to shoot a series of 6 images of this lily scape.

 

Having shot lots of lake scapes from within a boat throughout the years I learned a handful of useful things:

 

1. it's a lot of fun and it's easy to get an original view, but it can be just as hard, or even a whole lot of harder, preparing the ultimate exposure opposed to general landscapes.

 

2. though I almost never shoot without my ultra heavy Manfrotto tripod - without it makes me feel like a tourist without a clear destination, they are useless for shooting long exposures in the middle of a lake, especially from a small boat. Within this setting there's no way to hold the camera steady for a couple of minutes, or even seconds.

 

For this reason I'm in the initial process of fabricating a special ultra-tall tripod that I can stick into the bottom of these lakes. Probably more about this later...

 

3. there's always reflections and refractions you have to take into account, because they would at least fill a third of the frame, which makes the combination of exposure values somewhat different opposed to general landscapes. A polarizer works particularly well in these cases.

Nelumbo nucifera From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Lotus flower)

Blue flower / Lotus:

Nelumbo nucifera, known by a number of names including Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, or simply lotus. Botanically, Nelumbo nucifera (Gaertn.) may also be referred to by its former names, Nelumbium speciosum (Wild.) or Nymphaea nelumbo. This plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances its seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1300 years old recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China.[1]

A common misconception is referring to the lotus as a water-lily (Nymphaea), an entirely different plant as can be seen from the centre of the flower, which clearly lacks the structure that goes on to form the distinctive circular seed pod in the Nelumbo nucifera.[citation needed] It should also be noted that water-lilies come in colors of white to yellow where as the lotus only in hues of pink.[citation needed]

Native to Greater India and commonly cultivated in water gardens, the lotus is the national flower of India
