    I spent 2 weeks in Sichuan in October: Chengdu and surroundings, with a 4 days trip to Kunming / Yunnan visiting the Kunming Botanical Garden, including their orchid collection not accessible for visitors ..

    First some photos of flowering orchids in Mrs Wenqing Perner's Hengduan Mountains nursery:

    Our visit to the Botanical Garden in Kunming, province of Yunnan: We were fortunate to have some expert guides for visiting their orchid collection, as well as the very large main greenhouse, not open to public at present time.

    First a few impressions of their slipper collection:

    Superb photography Jean! All tourists should have
    such a "good eye". I love the Cyms. and that gorgeous
    bonsai.

    Hi Jean, don't know what I should praise more the abundance of pictured orchid flowers and city sights or the quality of your photos. I'm wondering if you used a tripod even when your were visiting the Kunming Botanical Garden? The P. spicerianum group in the first photo, the perfect opener, immetiately was breathtaking to me. Must have been a great journey.

    Hi Rudolf, whereas in Wenqing's greenhouse I was at ease and shot most of the photos with tripod and black background, I had of course not the time/and material to do the same in Kunming … so just put camera s ISO a lot higher and did my best …: depth of field (Tiefenschärfe) is the problem then .. :)

    Hi Jean, without a tripod.....the result is excellent and depht of field is sufficient, at least in my eyes. Congrats to these fotos.

    Hallo Jean!

    Seems to have been a very nice and interesting trip - and thank you for taking us a bit along on the tour with your excellent photos!

    Such great pictures in all respects - with such an embarras de richesses, it's impossible for me to single out specific favorites!

    Kind regards,
    Jens
