Beauty arises in the stillness of your presence. ~ Eckhart Tolle

The Botanical Gardens here doesn’t have an abundance of flowers as in other similar places. However, what it does have is beautiful and enough to inspire me to take these photographs.

(Above two photos) Pink and white lilies. I chose to take these photographs early in the morning; somehow the flowers and everything else around them appear fresher and more resplendent. Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS.

(Below) I couldn’t help but notice these uniquely shaped leaves with the sunlight filtering through them. Overexposing a touch and adding a Nikon soft filter creates a dreamy mood. Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro.

(Above two photos) A very colorful and red cannon ball flower and buds. The photo of the myrtle crepe flowers was taken with a Nikon soft filter screwed on my Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS lens.

(Below) I love how colorful and aplenty bougainvillea are in the gardens. This was shot with a Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS.
