Phalaenopsis - Shih Hua Gold

Phalaenopsis - Shih Hua Gold

Taken in Big Island Hawaii just after a down pour of rain. I love the rich vibrant colours that surrounds the entire photo almost seeming like a 3D image. I was hurrying to take the photographs as not only was I concerned that the rain could return but we had booked a helicopter flight that afternoon over the volcano which we heard that morning was stirring.

My caddie (husband) was doing an excellent job of holding the umbrella, spare lens, backpack and tripod and quickly helping me set up – multi tasking! There was no time to stop and smell the roses or in this case orchids. I love the tropical paradise which reminded me of my island home – Australia, in particular where I grew up and spent most of my life in Queensland.
