Thinking of Summer

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 22 March 2014 in Plant & Nature.

The background for these orchids was a ceiling window in a conservatory. A window frame detracted from the image so I deleted it. The result, I feel, is somewhat unreal looking orchids. Then, I thought of the conservatory and decided that its controlled humidity and temperature is also unreal - a fitting place for unreal orchids! :-) I still find them very appealing.
