Calla Lily

This yellow orange calla lily at the Botanic Gardens was a gorgeous color and I liked the simple shape it made in repetition.

leaf edges

The previous mandala was taken from this picture. Edges are very important in how we see the world. They define where our vision goes, stops and travels around.

Colorful leaves

Took another trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens, the tulips are out and they are starting to put up the Calder sculptures to be featured this summer. The leaves in this mandala were inside in the greenhouse, I just loved the colors.

Water Droplets

Water droplets always intrigue me. I have come close to having an upside down reflection in one, but not this time. The stair step opening on the stucco patios in Sedona made the diamond shapes in the middle of the mandala.

Agave

Down in the desert southwest there are many types of agave, this one happens to be a variegated version growing in the red rocks.

different angle same church

This is not the front on view in the mandala but still a version of the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona Arizona. I love that it is built into the rocks. Grounded.

Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona, AZ

This is a hard building to photograph, because the best view of the whole building is from right below and there is really not much parking there. We were lucky - all you need is one space - which we found. The building is a big box with a cross in the window, simple but beautiful. I had one judge at photo club say why make it a circle it would stand just as well as a single shot. So I'll let you judge, I'll post the original shot tomorrow.
