Thanks for stopping by! I'm Florent, from France. I stepped into photography in 2003, but things got serious in 2008 as I started to make product images for an online seller of exotic and carnivorous plants. I'm drawn to weather phenomena, beautiful atmospheres, and nature's grace in general. I aim for great picture clarity even at full size (no noise, no smearing).
While the nearby city was immersed in fog, the hill let us witness this stunning scenery.
At times, the sunlight combined well enough with trees and mist to create intense streaks in the low-density upper part of the stratus layer. A few dozen meters above, the sun reigned supreme in a deep blue sky.
The villose pitcher plant is a carnivorous plant that grows exclusively on two mountains in Borneo, Mt. Kinabalu and Mt. Tambuyukon, at elevations of more than 2400 m. It is known for its ribbed and hooked peristome.
This image is a stack of 55 photographs of the latest pitcher on a 12-year old specimen. Size is 6 cm (2.4 in) from the lid to the bottom...
