Hi Yianni,

Beautiful species, very well recorded. We do not have this one here.

Have a pleasant weekend,


Hello Yiannis,
When I look at an image like this I do not search for words because words to adequately describe it are hard to come by. Instead, I just sit back and look and enjoy. There is a sense of movement, of rotation, of it being blown by the wind, even though it probably is very stationary. And the colours are just beautiful. Not going to move on from this image for some time.

Παράξενος και όμορφος Dianthus Γιάννη. Ακόμα μια εξαιρετική φωτογραφία με εντυπωσιακή σύνθεση και πολύ καλή ευκρίνεια.

Merhaba Yiannis,
rüzgar gülünü andıran çok güzel bir kompozisyon olmuş.
Tebrik ederim, saygılarımla..

Hallo Yiannis
I just love the curley shape of this flower's petals, as well as the markingss on the inside of the crown. Further to that I find the purple anthers very eye-catching. The brown background and the light emphasise the details of the flower beautifully. It reminds me of a merry-go-round. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Oh Yiannis..this flower looks like a PINWHEEL! AMAZING!

Hello Yiannis,
This Dianthus-species is most beautiful, reminds me a little bit of a pink wind-mill. Well chosen square composition and fine color-contrast. An interesting species!
have a nice day
Kind regards
