Hi TN friends,
this picture was made outside of the Jardin Botanico Historico la Conception in Malaga. About the ID I am not 100% sure but it must be Aristolochia baetica.
2008 we were travelling with the car from Valencia to Malaga and see at this time a lot of nice landscapes and plants.

Excellent capture of these exotic looking flowers, Sascha.
I like the composition with the two flowers. The subtle colours on them are well captured.
Thanks and all the best.

Hello Sascha,
something new to me to see this plant. Its colours is so dense and the shape is very exciting also. The sharpness is good as the light helps to enhance it. i like the way it is shown like two dragons fighting each other.
Good colours contrast too.


Hello Sascha,

a good pov on this new flowers for me.
Your flowers have been a little overexposed and left side gives a white area that catch my eye, sorry but i give critique on what i see, maybe the explaination is not to good in english but i mean it good.
Fine colours.

Ciao Sacha. Impressive lightning compo with brilliant colours. Perfect sharp and details. What superb environment.


Siempre es bonito observar estas curiosas especies. Buenos colores, aunque la luz se te escapó un poco Sascha. Por aqui solo tengo vista A. pistolochia.
