Too many shots from today’s outing, without many labels or much context.

But then, orchids are amazing enough to stand alone, and haven’t a need for my ignorant ramblings.


A nice grouping, displaying some of the breadth of the Orchid World:

Another, a thirty-second exposure, with a pot on a slow-moving carrousel:

…and some close-ups:

With a few overviews thrown in to break the monotony:

…and a couple more close-ups to get right into it:

Overall, I was disappointed with my catch; the lighting was somehow both harsh and insubstantial, and the requisite long exposures were adversely affected by the vibrations of constant foot traffic.

Still, a sub-optimal day among orchids beats an excellent day at work.

Well, I like the close-ups but the revolving one is very interesting.

Thanks, Ralph. What a perfect reminder that Spring is just around the corner.
