This wild orchid is shot along the hiway to Cameron Highlands. This place is a coold holiday resort in the mountains ridge in the staet of Pahang.
It is quite difficult as the wind is the constraints.

Cameron Highlands was discovered when in 1885, a British colonial surveyor uncovered a beautiful valley among some mountains while exploring Peninsular Malaysia's rich rainforest on horse. That man, William Cameron, as the valley came to be named after him, saw the potential for growing tea in this lush land. Over time, Cameron Highlands rewarded his efforts by producing tea leaves of the highest quality, a precious commodity for export then. Today, Cameron Highlands is a major tea producer in the Southeast Asian region along with continental greens and strawberries. Boh and Bharat Tea are the two largest tea-growers in Malaysia.
When it comes to nature, Cameron Highlands is a rich ecological valley with astounding wildlife and mesmerising floral species. Wild orchids, ferns, vines and pitcher plants drape the mossy trees and shrubs, an ideal habitat for highland reptiles, amphibians and insect species. There are many endemic species to be found here, such as Trimeresurus nebularis, a beautiful greenish blue pit-viper that only thrives in montane forests. Many orchid species have been described from here as well.

While the trees get less dense as you go higher in elevation, the atmosphere also becomes quieter. This can make the environment appear devoid of wildlife. The montane forest may seem a lonely and deserted place, with only the frosty air and pale trees to keep you company as the thick mist casts a pale shroud over your countenance. Hidden behind every nook and corner in the montane forest, however, is something fascinating to be discovered.

Hello Foozi,
A beautiful shot from this orchid. Nice natural colours. Good POV,BG and DOF. Fine details. Interesting notes. Regards and TFS.

Hi Foozi,
This appears to be a cattleya orchid based on the rabbit ear-like features of the petals. Rare for some and very beautiful. Fine attractive colors, the image is well metered. Best regards.

  • Great

Hi Foozi

Superb colour & saturation in this striking floral macro of the attractive orchid. You did well considering the windy conditions. Indah sekali dans terima kasih untuk foto ini!

Hi mF Foozi,

A realy great macro capture of this beautiful orchit from fine pov with excellent clarity and details.
TFS and cheers,


Wonderful capture this lovely flower!
Beautiful and sharp details and colors!

This is a splendid capture with good composition, DOF, sharpness and exposure. However i find the colour saturation applied is too excessive as there is some significant color "bleeding" in the inner orchid petal and this leads to loss of depth/details in here. Very detailed notes on offer and thank you for sharing this photo and the accompanying useful info.



Hello Foozi,

I love your composition with the orchid appearing from the corner of the frame and travelling at an angle across it. The colours are vibrant, the focus sharp and the dof gives a good bokeh.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
