Sri Puram early morning shots at lake

These were taken one morning in Sri Puram - I was lucky enough to be able to photograph inside the spiritual park before it opened, and got my bro David to come with me and experience this incredible place.

I really got into the lilies and lotus flowers during this trip as there were lots of fire puja rituals performed into the lead up of the Sri Puram's Temple consecration.

In the fire pujas, lotus flower petals were individually dipped in honey and thrown into the fire by the priests as they chanted from the vedas. All as an offering to the gods.
