I got this as a one pbulb start a few years back. It bloomed in February and now again in December. Sure it's only one flower at the moment, but this is such a happy plant, grows so fast and blooms freely. It's become one of my favorite. I had to take pictures today and post them, because we got a new camera! It's a Nikon D3300 SLR. I just love it - if I set one dial to take close ups, it does the rest. Or I can tell it to have the shutter speed a priority or the aperture and dial around the other stuff and it will give me gorgeous photos with a minimum of camera knowledge (though I plan to learn more about it of course!). Anyway... here is my Jewelbox! Note these are taken with two different settings. Now if I just remembered which one was which...
The color is amazing!
It really is that saturated too, the color came through nicely. It's a very intense red with hints of orange and deep purple. The flowers aren't terribly big, probably about 4" across, but it often blooms more than one and stays in flower a long time.
Lovely shots of a classic gem.
Lovely Red color . Thanks for sharing
Those are some great photos, and the color of this Cattleya is amazing. I got my Nikon D3300 yesterday, I am still reading the manual to learn how to use this new toy, my micro lens should arrive by the end of the week.
I just jumped in with the little video and started experimenting, couldn't wait to read the manual! lol It's a whole lot of fun.
I am only reading to learn what each button does first then I will get started taking pictures, the more you use everything the sooner you improve. At my age it takes a little longer to understand all these new gadgets. I am still learning what things I can do on my cell phone does.
I haven't gotten a smart phone myself, hoping to hold out as long as possible. Although I would start to use the stuff on it, I don't need it and would really prefer not to be tied to the smart phone thing.
I've been reading the manual too, I just HAD to take some pictures first. Too excited to get the fancy new camera.
