These are pictures from the 2008 Santa Barbara International Orchid Show on March 1, 2008. I did not judge the show this year as I decided to judge the San Francisco show which was the same day. (Unfortunately, I forgot my camera, so i don't have photos of the show!)

The show was quite crowded so I did not get the shots that I would have gotten if I had been there for judging.
The lighting is also poor so the pictures came out a bit yellow.

The highlight of the show in my opinion was the center display as well as the outstanding display of Laelia anceps from SBOE.

Please enjoy!

thank you for the pretty pict. What a crowd of lovely Laelia anceps!! Looks like great quality blooms are exhibited (even if I am not 'the' Cymbidium lover). Jean

Thanks Ramon! For the slipper lovers, I did try and post some pics of the Paphs. There is a nice display of parvies and brachies from Monsoon Flora. They were set in a mountain like display! There were also some nice P. Ho Chi Min's in the show.

Thanx for posting. I could almost smell the Dendro. speciosums! I'm starting to 'jones' for an orchid show. I hope Lauris [Cal orchids] brings some nice epi's to the SEPOS show.
