Asia Royalty

From 2010 Blog
- The chrysanthemum was cultivated in China as far back as the 15 century BC. In Europe it is often associated with death and funerals but in Asia it is a symbol of royalty. The Chrysanthemum Throne is the name given to the position of Japanese emperor and it is depicted on the Imperial Seal of Japan. Canon 40D, 1/60 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400, 50mm macro.
