Photographing Lotus and Water Lilies at Kenilworth Aquatic Park



Learn photography skills with this hands-on, experiential journey!

Now - Jul 17, 2021. From: 07:45 AM to 10:15 AM

Spend a Morning Photographing Beautiful Lotus and Water Lily Blossoms at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens! The original gardens date back to the late 1800's and it is a one-of-a-kind destination within Anacostia Park. A hidden gem in Washington, DC, the summer lotus and lily blossoms are a must see during their peak blooming period in July, not unlike viewing the cherry blossoms in the spring. 

There are over 45 ponds filled with a variety of water lilies and lotus, an elevated boardwalk through the surrounding tidal marshes, and access to the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. There is some type of water lily blooming in the park from early May until mid-September, but the gardens are known for their lotus display which reaches peak bloom in mid-July.

During the safari, we will work on using different focal lengths, f-stops and compositional techniques to create artistic images.

Washington Photo Safari is a service of E. David Luria Photography.
