This is a discussion on Paph Harbur 'Golden gate' within the Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, Cypripedium IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Originally Posted by pavel It's easy enough to find, Geoff -- it's under the orchid ...
I have looked at the show pics - shows are so difficult to photograph I find. The big stands are amazing, but reduced to a few inches across, the details can't be seen . I could put names on a few things,not labelled, but its not worth the effort I think. BTW Dick Clemens is a Phrag not a Paph. ( Dick himself is no longer of this world, I think, and was an experimental biologist rather than an orchidist , so perhaps he wouldn't mind anyway !)
I like your old friend Geoff and I am glad the question was asked and your answer that was given on "complex Paphs"., etc.
Very beautiful.... this orchid is definitely a looker. I can only guess the attention it got 25yrs ago when you first got it. Me, I can only hope that I can keep my orchids alive for that long.
Very nice paph, Geoff. We rarely if ever see any complex paph here as they are mostly cool growers, so I was quite surprised to see a few here grown by some nurseries in the highlands. I took some pictures but, of course , as is the usual practice here all NOID.
You must be disappointed not being able to see the Ansellias in the wild.
it might have cost alot but i think it was worth it, especially after 25 years
