Featured “Fotographer”: Page Treddenick

Background: I’ve known Page for at least 25 years through the horse industry.  She has several hobbies including riding horses, cooking, needle pointing, and traveling.  She also has an eye for photography.  She has photographed many a water lily but these were particularly breath taking in their beauty.

Image Title: Water Lily

Location: On the moat outside Angkor Wat

Fun Fact(s):  The Indian lotus water lily capture here is also called the sacred lotus or Egyptian bean.  It is sacred to Hinduism and to several other Asian religions such as Buddhism. Its large pink blossom is used symbolically in religion and art. The seeds of the sacred lotus can remain viable after long periods of dormancy.

Angkor Wat, located in Cambodia and where this photo was taken, is the largest religious monument in the world.  It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple and gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century.
