Hi guys

Here's a few photos from the 2012 VCPs annual show.

The displays this year looked fantastic and were filled with some absolutely stunning and rare plants.

Overall it was another great show and I hope everyone who participated and went enjoyed seeing some of the plants in Victoria!

Cheers

Thanks guys

I was pretty happy with the look of the display and there was a nice variety of plants for most genera and some very nice rare plants at the show too.

There was probably about a dozen of the usual crew that brought plants to display which made it look so good.

It'd be great if a few more people that lived close bothered to add to the display. I don't know if some people are too scared to bring their plants or just aren't interested?

The camera that I took these photos with is a Panasonic Lumix DMC TS3. It's 12m underwater proof, shock proof, has GPS etc. And takes some nice photos for a compact, it's not the best compact but pretty good. I took it to Borneo with me as a small camera that I could keep in my pocket, be completely waterproof and take general snap shots of Borneo and the plants.

Cheers

Steve
