[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
To see this orchid, although I expected them, on Gotland was surreal. We have one place with two or three plants in The Netherlands. Here I found several 1000s of these flowers in one location right on the beach, together with many E. atrorubens (see previous pic) and P. Bifolia & P. Chlorantha. Talk about the paradise island beach!! After this I found them on quite a large number of other places.

Personally for me this is THE orchid

Hallo Jeroen,
Prachtige foto van deze orchidee. Je hebt je inmiddels behoorlijk gespecialiseerd. Erg leuk om een thema als hoofdonderwerp voor je foto's te hebben. Mooie zachte kleuren in prima scherpte en een goede vage achtergrond.

Hello Jeroen,
Yes this is a favourite for me too!
I must return to Gotland to take digital photos instead of the old analogs I had.
Nice close one of C. rubra.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Jeroen,

Excellent composition that shows the beauty and the phases of the flowers. Nice soft colors that are in harmony with the oof background. Thanks. Ali.

Hello Jeroen,
In fact, it is a real beauty! Elegance, fantastic colours. Your shot is excellent, well composed, with a perfect warm background. I'm sure I will see many others beauties posted last weeks in your gallery... Cheers,
