CROCUS SPECIES (probably Crocus vernus)

This is my 400th picture on TN and I'm happy to be still on this interesting nature-site. I would like to thank all TN-members who make this place so special and friendly.
I was looking for something special, but finally I have chosen this Crocus-picture, because it shows quite well the strange and cold weather period we are having this year. Crocusses and other Spring-flowers are already out and have to face very low temperatures (until -10°) and I'm amazed how well they resist. Sunshine, clouds and a very cold wind are alternating and I had the feeling that this picture shows this mix quite well. I took it by strong "bise", this is our cold Northern wind which blows actually on our country.

Hallo Anne,
was für ein wunderschönes Bild. Eine perfekte Kompozition für diesen Ereignis. Mit deinen wunderschönen Fotos ist TN reicher.
Ich will sehen auch deine 4.000 Post.
Gestern war ich ganz kurz mit meinem Cousin in der Schweiz, bei Flims. Sehr schöne Landschaft.
Ich hab`an dich gedacht.
Ein schöner und warmer Tag,

Ciao Anne. Your 400th jewel in simphony of light and colours. TFS.


Hallo Anne
Congratulations on the milestone you have achieved by posting your 400th posting.
This image is just proof that even a simple flower can turn out to be a great photograph and one do not always have to take pictures of tiny insects, colourful birds or unusual mammals to be seen as a good photographer. This is a basic and very straightforward image, but unique and eye-catching because your technical skills was used to its best. This is great image, with details well seen and displayed. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Anne, congratulations for your splendid 400th post on TN, lovely composition with beautiful crocus, great light, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Liebe Anne!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu deinem Jubiläum. Und vor allem auch herzliche Gratulation zu diesem schönen Bild. Die Frühlingsboten sind willkommen, und du hast sie mit einem wunderbaren Lichtspiel eingefangen. Der starke Farbkontrast erzeugt eine satrke Wirkung des Bilds und hebt die Schönheit des Krokus bestens hervor.



hello Anne
Congratulation with this super 400th picture
nice light to make this picture very good
the colours are beautiful and great sharpness
greeting lou

joli point de vue pour ses crocus j'aime beaucoup le flou intérieure.
Bonne soirée Marilène.

Ciao Anne,
prima di tutto congratulazioni per essere arrivata alla tua quattrocentesima immagine su TN, una dopo l'altra e non solo per esserci, hai raggiunto non un semplice traguardo numerico fine a se stesso, ma una somma di tanti tasselli che hanno arricchito sotto tutti gli aspetti questo grande raccoglitore dove tutti possono imparare ad amare e conoscere meglio la Natura; di questa immagine mi piace moltissimo la composizione straordinariamente bella, dal punto di vista compositivo spesso su TN si vedono degli stereotipi, personalmente credo che bisogna conoscere certe regole, ma certamente le cose migliori che si vedono su TN sono quelle che ti colpiscono con un tocco magico e leggero, penso che sia troppo facile e superficiale un'immagine di solo impatto visivo.
Complimenti e grazie ancora per il tuo notevole contributo.
Buona serata
Con amicizia

Merhaba Anne,

Sharpness and clarity are excellent. Very well composition. Thanks for sharing.

friednly regards

Hello Anne,
A splendid photo to celebrate this milestone. Congratulations. The light and colours are amazing. Together with the excellent sharpness and great DOF this is a fantastic photo. Very good low POV. Up to number 500!

Bonjour Anne,
Congradulations on your 400th Post. You have shared many, many, many exceptionally beautiful images of life in Switzerland through your visit here on TN, and as I view this image of the Crocus it is no different than the other images, although one can feel the cold wind blowing across their forms and the low light makes the background appear flat and lackluster. I love the shadows and the beautiful forms of the Crocus', and the light that falls upon your main subjects.
I hope all is well in Berne with you, and Congradulations again.
It has been a long time since I was here on TN...

Hallo Anne,

I don't know if it is Crocus vernus or another species from the genera, but I know it's a fantastic photo with great sharpness, colors, very well blurred background and pleasant composition. The oof grass-blade in front of a crocus is a bit disturbing, otherwise a fabulous capture. Bravo. Also congrats for reaching the 400 posts border.

Anyway, You're lucky to have at least a few spring flowers already out. We don't have anything like this yet, at least I didn't detect any flowers yet.

Friendly regards, László

Hi Anne
First of all, great congratulation for your 400th posts!
Great realization!
Today a great and lovely crocus!
Very sharp details and wonderful colors.
Congratulation again!

So ein fantastisches Motiv - die Farben, die zarten Blütenblätter, und die leuchtenden Krokusse wiederholen sich im Hintergrund, einmalig schön.
Ich würde mich soooo freuen, endlich welchen live im Garten sehen zu können - aber alles ist weiß und hart gefroren, der Winter scheint dieses Jahr keinen Abschied nehmen zu wollen.
Danke schön - zeig uns weitere 400 Bilder, bitte!

Hallo Anne,
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deinen 400 Photos an TN. Viel arbeit, viel Zeit, viele interessante Fotos. Sehr viele Kommentare die den „Anfänger“ immer hilfreich wahren.
Die schönen Krokusse passen zu der Gelegenheit wunderbar. Siggi

Chère Anne,
Félicitations pour ces 400 merveilles que tu partages avec nous et pour ton étonnement permanent pour les beautés qui nous entourent. Cette photo a une véritable atmosphère hivernale, avec ses contrastes, sa bise qui nous glace les doigts et le nez et pourtant déjà la chaleur dans les couleurs printanières. Bravo! Amitiés,

  • Great

Hi Anne,
very beautiful crocus in its nice soft view. i like the effect the light has on it. so shine and well shown in the lurry background. This is lively flower, we dont have it here.


Bonjour Anne,
Félicitations pour la performance et pour cette agréable publication valorisant bien les sujets et pour laquelle il m'est agréable de constater que tu as favorisé des fleurs à des insectes !!!
Pour ma part les seules prémices du printemps que j'ai pu apercevoir ne sont que les nivéoles.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

nice artistic pic, TFS Ori

bonjour Anne
WOW ! 400 Photos sur TN, c'est vraiment impressionnant, et toutes ont superbes,
j'aime bien la diversité de ta galerie, avec alternativement des fleurs, insectes, oiseaux et paysages
cette mage de crocus est excellente, on dirait que ces adorables fleurs essayent de capter la lumière naturelle
chez nous en Alsace il fait le même temps que chez vous en Suisse
Passe une bonne nuit

my friend Anne, congratulations for your 400 beautiful and aesthetically splendid photographs like this, "keep photographing!"
best regards

anche questa macro e' confezionata davvero bene
dove il gioco di cromatismi in questo gruppo di
crocus la rende piacevole....
complimenti Anne per il traguardo dei 400 post
un contributo importante per T.Nature

ciao sERGIO
