It's time to appreciate lotuses

Summer is the best season to enjoy lotus as the aquatic plant has both aesthetic and cultural value, especially for the Chinese. During the Six Dynasties period (220-589), people extensively cultivated lotus and formed a custom of appreciating lotus in summer. Liang Hong, a photographer who has focused on lotuses for over 30 years, shares his latest photos of this year taken in Luoshan County, central China's Henan Province. Have a look!
