Passion, 1 of 2 - Laguna Beach, CA - USA
I'm passionate about life and it's beauty. This is a passion flower. What a mind blowingly magnificent creation from Mother Nature. This capture was the first time I've seen one. On a carefree day, in a very zen state, tuned in to the beauty all around us, I was wandering around, loving life, and all of the beauty found in the magnificent Laguna Beach, CA.
I was lucky to stumble upon it floating in the water, appropriately enough, in a zen themed gift shop. In love with, and mesmerized by the intensity and intricacy of these beautiful details, I zoomed in for this macro shot with my basic kit lens. Passion 2 is panned out to show the entire flower, and flow of the water.
