Every year from May to early July, the lotus flowers bloom in the ponds along Jhongsing Village’s Shengfu Road. The lotus ponds attract an abundance of visitors from around the area. It is quite common on weekends to see a cluster of photographers and their tripods taking multiple shots of a single specimen while several other enthusiasts wait behind for an opening to step forward and compose a shot or thirty.
Luckily for me, the ponds are located just off the route I take to work every morning. Recently, I was able to spend a few minutes there before clocking in. Although I’ve taken photographs here several times in previous years, I always manage to come back with something different.
As of writing this, the ponds still look spectacular, which will probably warrant a second visit before all the flowers wither away.
