I remembered this special event as being a superb photographic opportunity with many orchids close and personal. Well lit and clean backgrounds, who could resist the chance to capture them.
Contacting the Orchid Society, I asked permission to come in with camera in hand to be able to take my time and capture orchids to my heart’s content. And capture them I did! Everyone was so gracious, and even the judges who were busily trying to figure out the show winners that morning.
Click through and enjoy some new additions to my Orchid gallery. Nature’s remarkable creations.
These flowers, which were splendid and sprightly, waking in the dawn of the morning, in the evening will be a pitiful frivolity, sleeping in the cold night’s arms.
