Purple Orchids



I decided to do some indoor photography today – I’m a little tired of the icy glaze covering the snow which makes walking outside hazardous to my health – so I went to one of my favorite places in Madison, the Bolz Conservatory which is part of Olbrich Botanical Gardens. The Conservatory was really warm. I quickly shed my sweater, and literally was wiping perspiration from my forehead midway through the shoot. But the orchids all seemed to be thriving in the heat and humidity.

    Beautiful rendering of a beautiful flower. Was beginning to think much the same..that it’s time to turn my camera indoors. This icey stuff is getting old!!!

    This is lovely! Stunning. I so wish we had a botanical garden or conservatory around here. I may have to make a day trip to Nashville……

    Orchids are among my favorites. Nice shot, but i don’t understand the snow issue. 🙂
