Lotus on West Lake

My coworker and I took a short trip from Shaoxing (where we were teaching English language) to Hangzhou. We woke before dawn to go on a bike ride around the West Lake, trying to capture as many shots of the lotus flowers as we could; they stretched on for several hundred feet in every direction.
