A Good Day Out

Well the long weekend brought a few very pleasant surprises. I had entered the Kalamunda Spring In The Hills Photographic Competition on a last-minute whim. Literally there were minutes to go as I entered online. This was the image I chose to put in the open category.

White spider orchid, caladenia longicauda, is one of Western Australia’s most well known orchids. Mokine, Western Australia. Canon EOS 5D Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro lens. Exposure 1/100 s at f/4.0 ISO 100.

I went to the opening of the competition at The Zig Zag Cultural Centre and was very chuffed to win third prize in the open category. The winners can be seen here. The icing on the cake came when I was told that I’d also sold the print. So all in all a very successful day out. Thanks to all the folks at the Gem Camera Club who organise the competition and the Shire of Kalamunda who are the hosts.

Copies of the print can be bought through my gallery .
