Yellow Glow

Orchid — Washington, DC

One of many hundreds — possibly thousands — of photos I’ve taken of orchids down at the US Botanic Garden in DC over the years, but I think that this is my favorite shot of them all. I love the glowing colors, this particular bloom, the overall composition, the shallow depth of field — and the dreamy, almost painterly quality of the image. All that’s missing from this image is the amazing scent, wafting through the air.
