Hi all,
an other picture of last winter. You may be asking... flowers in winter? yes... i was sorprised too.
This was a very strange day: very hot and sunny during the winter time, so as it was my free day, instead of going to the mouintais, i went to the shore of Nahuel Huapi´s lake (a bit of sun after several months of rain and snow is wanted by the body!)
In other of my pictures i show the place (http://es.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=135036) This is one of the shores of Quetrihue´s peninsula; it´s a very rocky beach. There are of course some trees (coihues) and some plants, but at that time of the year is very hard to see flowers.
So, I was sitting in one of this rocks, watching at the lake, when a big bee start to fly in front of me (an other strange thing, there are not bees during winter!!) and i follow it to an other rock where i found this little white flowers. The sun went straight to them, nothing was covering them of wind or something. The rock was a bit high, i had to trek a little.
They were very tiny, i found some of them like in a bouquete, in very small groups. They had four little petals, in oposite sides. If you have any idea of the ID of this little thing, please, let me know!! I search on my plants books but there is nothing like this...
thanks for visitin!

Beautiful shot. Not amongst the best in terms of sharpness,... but the composition is wonderful. I think if you blur the white flowers more, so that it appears as if you are viewing through a foggy glass, then the lack of sharpness may actually help in making the picture more beautiful. I don't know if it is possible or not,... but may be you can give it a try. Anyways, good work.

I know many flowers, these I cannot even guess. Very pretty indeed!

Hi Brenda,very nice flowera and excellent choice of point of view,lights and colours are fantastics,my bst compliments for your work,Luciano

hello Brenda
nice photo with great POV and details

Hi Brenda!

I like the simplicity of this picture and of these flowers very much. It's also typical for people who love winter and the mountains. I also appreciate your very pleasant notes where you tell us the story of a moment of your day.

Kind regards
