Lotus flowers of Macau 澳門的荷花





The lotus was selected as the Macau city’s flower. It has become the symbol of Macau.

In summer, you can see many beautiful lotus flowers blooming in the parks of Macau.

The lotus therefore has become one of the major subjects in summer, for photography lovers.

These are the lotus flowers I photographed this year. I hope you enjoy them!


荷花被選定為澳門的市花。也成為了澳門的標誌。

到了夏季, 在澳門的公園都可以看到一朵朵漂亮的荷花含苞待放。

拍攝荷花也成為了一班攝影發燒友在夏天的重要活動之一。

這些都是我在今年拍到的荷花, 希望大家欣賞!

  5. 多謝基司大師欣賞! 重辦既荷花其實我都係由上年荷花展先開始見到,
    因為上年先開始影荷花, 所以都唔係唔係新品種...
    咁多張你都鍾意, 真係開心! ^.^

    希望下年再有機會看到!

  8. 好正 ;)
    見到蜜蜂我都唔敢去影佢
    就算唔太近 我都唔知點解好怕佢會針我-,-

  9. 多謝叻叻欣賞, 好開心見到妳重出江湖! 大家又有眼福!

  10. 多謝Kay欣賞! 其實我以前都係咁諗,
    不過影得多蜜蜂除左覺得佢地好得意,
    仲發覺我越想走近影佢地, 佢地越會飛走,
    原來係佢仲驚過我地... @_@

  11. They are so beautiful. I have never seen such water lilies in Britain.
    We do have water lilies here but most of them are 睡蓮...
    And they are much smaller than the ones in your photos.

  12. Thanks London Caller, 睡蓮 is very beautiful too,
    but I didn't see any in Macau this year...
    I know 睡蓮 have purple, pink and yellow colors!
    I think the most different is the lotus leaves
    are more beautiful and we can take pictures with
    more composition with its!

  13. really great macro shots.... these are really close up - don't usu get to see such details with the eye. did u use a macro lens? love the first photo with the bee on the flower!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks lechua, yes the pictures were extremely sharp,
    but I didn't use macro lens, I only use the 135L
    and crop some photos for see the details!

  19. Gorgeous shots! How did you do the fuzzy edges on a few lotus, such as #3,#5 and #14...?

  20. Thanks micki, those were double exposures (雙重曝光),
    I took one normal and one out focus pictures
    and use photoshop to combine them together!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks for the tip! I will give a try too! ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  22. You're welcome, double exposures is a useful
    technic for flowers shooting! Hope you can do it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The close-up macro shots are amazing! Love the details captured in your pictures. Well done Rafael! Picture 4 & 5 are my favorites!

  24. BUt this type of lotus is edible, right?
    I miss lotus soup.
    In Malaysia, we also put peanuts in our lotus soup! Yum yum!!

  27. I'm loving these macro shots of the Lotus flowers - I could almost pluck them out from the computer screen!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks shloke,
    I use the Canon 135mm F2L lens for take these pictures,
    I think the details of the pictures were incredible,
    I was very satisfy ot it!
    The pictures 4 & 5 were double exposure,
    I usually use this technic for shooting flowers!

  29. To London Caller,
    Are these lotus edible? I only know the seeds "蓮子"
    can use for making soup and dryed fruits for CNY...

  30. Thanks tossan, you're welcome! ^.^

  31. To JC,
    這輯照片分別在盧九花園和觀音堂影的, 現在去可能有點遲了,
    因為這輯照片在兩個星期前拍的, 最美的荷花都拍不到了...

    其實在新馬路的荷花都很美, 但就要早上8:00至9:00先係最理想
    的拍攝時間, 比較少人陽光也配合得比較好, 對妳來講時間上有點難度...
