The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Fading light:
Finally, I show you this image of the orchid Diuris corymbosa. By the time I had taken this, the sun was just about on the horizon, the light was mostly gone, and the wind had picked up. To obtain even this image I had to open my lens aperture so much that my depth of field diminished. Hence the out-of-focus elements.

Overall, it is an unsatisfying image, but it is such a neat orchid I am not yet discarding the photograph. But I suspect that at some point I may delete this image from my domain.
