Hello dear friends and visitors!
I have seen on TV about the hard winter in Europe.And we can prove it through beautiful photos here in the site. Even Italians are posting pictures of snow, they too!!!( Hello Silvio!!!)
So,I´d like to share this pic today to all my dear collegues who are feeling cold...This pic was taken during my holidays at the beach.These two litlle flowers are like the sun I had during those days:a strong and bright sun that fills all with light and heat. I hope you can feel this heat!
Big hug from,

This flower was well identified by our dear collegues Maurizio ( maurydv) and Vanda( vanda) as:

Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus), also called the sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple or topinambour, is a species of sunflower native to eastern North America, and found from Eastern Canada and Maine west to North Dakota, and south to northern Florida and Texas. It is also cultivated widely across the temperate zone for its tuber, which is used as a root vegetable.
It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 1.5–3 metres (4 ft 10 in–9 ft 10 in) tall with opposite leaves on the lower part of the stem becoming alternate higher up. The leaves have a rough, hairy texture and the larger leaves on the lower stem are broad ovoid-acute and can be up to 30 centimetres (12 in) long and the higher leaves smaller and narrower.
The flowers are yellow, produced in capitate flowerheads which are 5–10 centimetres (2.0–3.9 in) in diameter, with 10–20 ray florets.Wikipedia

Many thanks dear friends! I appreciated it!

Olà Ana!
How are you? I think that Mauriuzio (Maurydv)is right: this flower is Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus). I know this flower (I photographed it me too): its colours are as in your picture. I must say that you made a great work, beacuse the yellow colour is terrible, especially with a very sunny day.
The image is sharp and details of the earth of the flower are very good. Nice play of shadows on the petals and very good dark BG.
A lovely composition: congratulations.
Another thing: we are here to learn and improve, but our goal is not become a professional photographer ... I believe..., but enjoy and share our hobby with many people.
Ciao e un abraço! Vanda

Hi Ana, Wonderful colour rich tones here just the way i like it... and how are you today my good friend?, fabulous detailed sharpness with good depth, splendid contrast with this dark background that pulls the flowers forward, great effort here Ana and very well done,
Best Regards,


PS Thank you for your kind words on my last post most appreciated,

Olá Ana!
Colocando todo o sol e cor do Brasil em um par de belas flores amarelas! ... Bom trabalho! ... O equilíbrio do branco é correto .... Mas o bom d George, nunca aceitar essos cores! .. haa...haaa.... :)

Hello aNa,
A very beautiful image with excellent clarity and detail. The workshop has a green cast which is unnatural. You seem to be slow on picking up on being abused for the sake of ego polishing and self glorification. Shed that nonsense...it is not worth it.

Best wishes.


Hi Ana,
What a splendid capture to view!!! The colour "Yellow" brought out in this exposure with fine, yet soft detail is what I love!! Excellent light balance, colours, green and dark BG makes this an astonishing composition my friend. well done!!
Best regards,

Hi Ana,
An excellent shot with good sharpness,colours and POV.Nice flower,

Bonjour Ana,
Comme deux soleils superposés, l'un faisant ombrage à l'autre. Très joli duo que tu montres avec un bon cadrage et une excellente netteté. J'apprends aussi le nom de ces beautés. J'avais manqué cette belle image, je me rattrappe donc!
En espérant que tout va bien chez toi
