There are over 1000 plants in the rhododendron family. The rhododendron is native to Asia, is the national flower of Nepal and figures prominently in other Asian cultures. These flowers are growing in the northeast US during the summer months. I find the exceptional color and variety and the lavish display make rhododendrons ideal subjects for photography. These images, all produced in 2015, have been created with a minimum of post-capture processing.
