Orchid Lit from Behind by Spring Sunshine
As spring develops the big trees behind our house gather their summer foliage. The morning sun is normally hidden behind the trees. For a few weeks in March and April the last minutes of the sunrise golden hour light up the lounge. This orchid was well placed with the sun behind, allowing the colours and textures to stand out.
Shot with the 70-300mm lens on the Canon EOS 60D, taking advantage of the high ISO capability and image stabilisation.
