Cakile maritima - Deniz Teresi [TR], Sea Rocket [EN], Hardalgillerden (BRASSICALES: BRASSICACEAE) familyasından deniz kıyılarında (kumlu ve çakıllı sahiller) yetişen sukkulent-otsu ve tek yıllık (annual) bir bitkidir. Yaz başı (Haziran)'ndan yaz sonu (Ağustos)'a kadar çiçek açar (bizimki Ocak ayında şaşırmış olarak çiçekli!).
Türkiye'de doğal olarak; Antalya, İstanbul, İzmir, Kastamonu, Muğla, Sakarya, Sinop ve Trabzon illerinden kayıtları vardır (ilaveten Mersin). Ülkemiz dışında; Avrupa (kıyıları), Kuzey Afrika ve Güneybatı Asya'da dağılım gösterir (TÜBİVES'ten).
Tür teşhisi için Riyat Gül'e çok teşekkür ederim.

PS: Above I told about the species. It is found in marine coasts and it flowers from June to August (this one was flowery in January). As for the shot, it was taken under good lighting, but windy condition by Canon 600mm telelens.

hello Ahmet,
A fine picture of this Brassicae-species, which looks quite alike the species we have around here. Excellent light and fine tints make this picture very pleasant. Love the color of the background as ideal complement to the flower.

Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
such a lively presentation in its best simplicity. The pretty flowers are well shown in details and colours on the grey background.
The light hitting the petals are so useful in enhancing the prettiness of the shot.
What a dramatic view with shallow depth of field.
Very well seen and appreciated.

Günaydin dostum Ahmet,
A fine capture of the flowers of this Cruciferous species of flower. The colours, composition, lighting, natural colours and sharpness contribute to a fine portrait of this species.
We have the same species on our beach too.
Thanks for sharing this simple beauty,
Eline saglik,

Merhaba Ahmet bey,
I like this kind of minimalistic shots so much. Excellent sharpness, exposure + composition, and the background is so smooth! Was it the sky or the water? Simple yet dramatic image with awesome lights, a real beauty indeed. Bravo.
Friendly regards, László
