[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I find this to be one of the most spectacular Campanula species. It is known in one site only here, at the very highest peak in Israel at an elevation of 2200 m a.s.l. It grows out of the rock, adding spectacular flower bearing stalks adhering to the face of the cliff. The flowers are about 18 mm in diameter. The entire plant is shown in the WS

I'm indebted to Shauli Beckerman who led us to this amazing site.

Hello Ishi,
What a beautiful composition - a stunningly blue 'rock-climber' captured from a very nice angle. Excellent sharpness and I love the texture and colours of the rock too.
TFS and best regards, Ulla
