Last in a series of pictures taken in the grounds of Bhubing Palace.
Bhubing Palace also known as Phu Phing Palace is a Thai Royal Palace mainly used by the Royal Family in the early months of the year. It lies toward the top of Doi Suthep mountain not far from the magnificent temple of Wat Doi Suthep, and some 20 kilometres from the city of Chiang Mai.
Its position high up on Doi Suthep means that it benefits from a temperate climate so that it can accommodate many plants and flowers that are unusual to see in most parts of Thailand. The public may visit the extensive grounds for a small charge when the Royal Family are not in residence. The palace itself is not open to the public.
It is pleasant and peaceful place to visit after the crowds to be found at Wat Doi Suthep.

A really well composed shot, using a narrow dof to great effect. I applaud how you have the focal flower head against the completely blurred b/g so that there are no distractions. The rest of the b/g adds the context.
Have a good day,

A good close up shot of this unusual (and unusually shaped) flower, which it is not possible to see in lower, more humid, tropical parts of Thailand. Superb use of a shallow dof with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. A good explanatory note. Excellent color and graphism. Tfs!

Une photo assez rare sur ce site, mais tellement belle dans sa simplicité et ses couleurs très tranchées. J'aime beaucoup le choix de la profondeur de champs.

That is a nice one yellow-white vs. green hues, an excellent contrast. The yellow flower is a real highlight. Good DOF and light management. Well done
Candid action photography, always smile, even the photographed know what you did, they most of the time will smile back.

I really like your composition here, and the DOF is perfect to show this flower in a fine view, its yellow colour is very striking. A beautiful shot to finish this series on, the flower is delicate and beautiful, just like the architecture of the complex that you have shared with us.

è piacevole vedere oltre al paesaggio ed alla popolazione della Thailandia anche la lora di questa regione, e la visita a questo splendido palazzo è stata per te un ottimo pretesto per mostrare fiori che altrimenti non avremmo visto.
In questa, oltre alla bellezza del fiore è rimarcabile la bella composizione che sfrutta una messa a fuoco selettiva per illustrare al meglio la bellezza della specie vegetale.
Ciao e buon pomeriggio

I saw similar flowers in Australia. I tried to identify them, but with no result. Excellent presentation. Beautiful photo.

Fleur exotique que je vois pour la première fois, spéciale par ces feuilles jaunes et blanches, netteté bien rendue par un bon DOF
