[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A giant, nature-made breakwater (?) forms a lagoon in to the shore. On this breakwater were millions of small, smooth stones, formed by the glacier long time ago I guess. In this stonedesert a few flowers were grasping to the ground, nature is fantastic.
I don´t know the name of this one, but the small blue flower did it for med, I didn´t want to leave, even if it was a very foggy day.

Lovely picture. Im not sure why you havent recieved more points for this. I think it is very moody and I can really feel the sensation you had when you saw this flower.
Great focus and blur effect! I tried to do a little workshop on this picture to try to enhance the colours in the flower a bit - but my WS limit has been reached for today.

Bra jobbet!

Hello Merete,

This is a nice picture of Mertensia maritima (Borraginaceae).
