In addition to his glittering or glowing cityscapes, Ralph Orona does beautiful in-her-face studies of Nature manifesting herself subtropically. Or, to be more accurate, he sees God manifesting himself in nature. He writes: "This is an orchid I found glowing this morning at Pinecrest Park in Miami."
These orchids---filled with light like a pair of translucent lamps so that you can even see their veins---do indeed have a numinous quality. They practically give off a scent: that scent of white petals in the sun. To see this glorious flower in detail, click the link below.
