[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all!

As Anne and Dieter (anel; meyerd) have already described, we were three TN-members on a photography safari high up in the Swiss Alps (Moosalp). The weather was great and mother nature invited us for a banquet: butterflies, flowers and mountains... all what a member of TN can desire!

This picture reflects what we have lived together during two days: joy, fun and happiness!

The flowers here on this picture are:

- Myosotis alpestris (Alpen Vergissmeinnicht; Forget me not alpine; Myosotis alpestre)

- Lotus alpinus (Alpen Hornklee; Lotier des Alpes; English unknown)

Taken in RAW, level corrections, tiny saturation; then saved as TIFF, cropped and saved as JPG for TN.

Kind regards

Hallo Markus
I think I'll get lost in my own dream world if it happens that I stumble across a field of flowers like these in the real world. Is the creation and nature not amazing? I think it would be an absolute feast walking through a countryside of flowers, stopping at each one, looking and admiring and then photograph it. The variety of colours is incredible. Admiring God's lovely garden stretching into the distance, via this photo was a sheer pleasure, and I want to thank your for sharing this divine view. Best regards

Hallo Markus,
ich habe es nicht gemerkt, dass Du trotz Arbeit schon um 7 h ein Bild montierst. Sehr gut so, ich platze ja schon vor Ungeduld um zu sehen, was Ihr zwei so aus dem Material gemacht habt.

Du hast eine erste Kostprobe serviert. Alles ist perfekt auf dem Bild, das auch mir merkwürdig vertraut vorkommt :-) Und hier wolltest Du unsere damalige Stimmung wiedergeben, ich bestätige hiermit: so wars! Du weisst genau, was zu tun ist wenn die senkrechte Sonne Schlagschatten wirft.

Herzlich grüsst

Hi Markus,

very ambient colours in the picture.

Hola Markus,
hermosa paleta de colores,
buen pov, detalles y sensacional encuadre,

A completely different way for you to post...but perhaps I am looking at it with an eye for some minimal meaning with grand patterns...and if so..there is one of the factors but I will search the other.

Hello Markus, wonderful coloured shot of these flowers. Perefect composition... TFS. Regards,

Un joli parterre de couleurs.
Bonne journée.

Dear Markus,
You have transported joy to all of us living in hellish hot tropical heat of India and elsewhere through this beautiful image from your cool Alps. Thanks!
Forget-me-nots are such beautiful flowers and they along with other brightly coloured ones make a splash of fascinating colours.
I too had the fortune of capturing such plenty of flowers on a 13000 ft high pass in the Himalayas in the summer of 2005.
Thanks for bringing joy through this lovely picture.

Hello Markus,
A great summer flower capture in Swedish Colours!
Looks like you, Anne and Dietrich had a good meeting high up in the alps.
Both the alpine Myosotis and Lotus flowers are sharply portrayed in a fine composition together. It is fascinating to see the colour variations of the Lotus alpinus flowers.
Thanks for sharing this fine capture,
Best wishes, Ivan

Bonjour Markus, quelles jolies fleurs! J'ai aussi pris des photos de fleurs de champs dans ma ballade aujourd'hui, à Ste-Béatrix... irrésistible ce temps des fleurs, l'été à ses débuts, chatoyant et coloré! J'aime beaucoup ces petites fleurs, lotier des Alpes, que je ne connais pas, elle sont vraiment belles. Et pour le myosotis, fantastique de voir qu'il pousse à l'état sauvage... ici, on en plante un plant qui se répand sur tout le terrain! Magnifique photo, j'adore les couleurs et la belle lumière, merci!

Joy to the world!! God's creation in miniature.

What an awesome image Markus, capturing all these pretty flowers. And I'd love to have been up there with you all. Next time - please ask me along!!

We have the Forget-me-not growing in NZ, but I'm not sure about the yellow alpine flower - they are so bright and eye-catching.


indeed joyfull, TFS Ori

Bonjour Markus
Tu nous offres un tableau de 'Renoir'!!!
Les couleurs sont d'un délicieux mélange. Et la représentation des fleurs est d'un grand naturel.
Alors Bravo, car j'aime beaucoup

Hi Markus,
Wow........outstanding shot of these wildflowers with such glorious colours and sharpness. Looks so pleasing to the eyes and the bright sunlight gives them perfect illumination. Great handling of light and exposure levels and a marvellous composition. Kudos.

These are some nice flowers! For some reason the one in the middle is my favorite, its like the focal point of the photo. Well done! Cheers Josh Lewis.

This is a nice sharp image with great color. What pretty little flowers. I am almost always disappointed in my wildflower shots. I think I try to get too much into one frame. Sounds like you had a great outing.

Evelynn : )

Bonsoir Markus
C'est simple comme sujet, mais le résultat est là : une très belle lumière et des couleurs qui s'associent parfaitement.

Hi Markus
These little flowers would be a delight to stumble across. The dainty Forget me nots and Lotus are a nice contrast to each other. A nice compostion with nice sharp detail, colour and lighting. Very pretty.
TFS Janice

Hi Markus,
beautiful bouquete of flowers. The yellow ones seems like some that grows into patagonian mountains; i´m going back home in some days so i´ll search the name and then i´m gonna tell you, maybe they are from the same family.

The pic is great, lovely bright colours and nice dark BG. Focus and sharp are great, there are also good details into this macro. Compliments! I´d like to have a picnic in such a wonderful place... seems magic
