Everywhere around Thailand, you find coconut shells filled with orchids swinging from palm trees. The flowers even decorate bathrooms at highway rest stops.

I really like this image! I also like the texture of the tree, the vertial lines of the bamboo, as well as the shapes caused by the string on the bamboo. The flowers cutting across this really works, especially with the spectacular colors.

Orchids are truly beautiful, I used to spend every early summer chasing the spots where they grow in the wild near where I live to photograph them. Tropical ones are in a league of their own though, just amazing.
