[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Along the winding road to Cameron Highland, we could see many of these wild orchids on the steep banks and foothills. It is quite difficult ot stop and have the picture taken. At this place, we managed to squeeze our car and have it taken. As it is at a very high place and the flower was above us, so the best background canvas is the blue sky. This shot is a real tough for me, as this flower hangs from a tall stalk or trunk. The wind is quite strong, and rally have to wait, as space and calm air is so precious here.
This flower is quite soft and very fragile too. I dont know how long iy lasts. It was such an enjoyable view to see wild orchids blooms in front of the eyes, when Im so used to see the cultivated ones.

Hi Foozi,
I appreciate the difficulty you had in shooting this,so we can overlook the fact that this is a rather old and tatty looking speciemen.
It is a very beautful flower though.
Cheers & TFS

Hello Foozi,
Great close up shot of this pretty orchid. Sharp, clear, with great details. Nice blue BG. Excellently captured and very well composed.
Best regards Siggi

Hello Foozi,

A colourful flower, with some typical features for this species!
We have actually wild orchids in Norway too, believe it or not, but they are rare and seldom seen...
Sharp fine details here, and the flower stands well on the deep blue sky!
