A couple from the archives, taken in April 2011 in the garden.

Some late morning sun had found this pair of orchids. Fortunately I found ‘em at that very moment Smile I really liked how the sun played across them.


Huge thanks to Matt (Herge88) for his very special User Award on 'Touch The Sky' Smile

Lovely orchid shots. I prefer version 1 but would like that stem in the bottom left hand corner taking out.

Two very cheery images, and you're right, that play of sunshine is GORgeous! I prefer the second for its simpler composition, but both are great.

Thanks for your visit BTW - it's good to BE back. I just wish I had more time to take photos then I might be a more frequent visitor!

All the best to you

Top class flower photography Andrew, I think this deserves the famous TT award. You've used the available light perfectly and I love the vivid yellow colour of those beautiful flowers
