Pyramidal orchid – County flower of the Isle of Wight

Pyramidal orchid by Jason Swain.

Should start by thanking my friend, fellow surfer and photographer Paul Blackley for pointing this one out to me and telling me to bring the macro lens along after surfing today. I would have known it looked pretty, but had no idea it was an Orchid or that it was the County flower of the Isle of Wight.

I’ve been working really hard lately shooting at loads of amazing events / festivals / weddings etc and photographing flowers has become a bit of an escape when I’ve wanted (needed) a break form ‘working’ with my camera and just want to shoot for the pure enjoyment of it. Maybe it’s because they stay still and don’t make any noise or talk back in general?
