A sacred lotus flower in Tsurugaoka-hachimagu

Beneath the blazing sun of mid-August, the vivid pink of the lotus petals is perfectly in harmony with the bluish-green of the leaves and magically enhances the beauty of this pond garden of summer.

The bright yellow of the pistil and stamens is brilliantly illuminating this silky flower from within.
