[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have to ask the help of Juan Luis (XOTEALE) to give me the name of this plant. It is very similar to the dandelion except for its dimentions. It is huge! The leafs form a corola of a meter in diameter and the flowers grow on a 1,5m high stem. It grows during the winters and flowers in march, preferably on forest soil.
They are really very spectacular. Tomorow a view of the whole plant.

Hi Karin,
Nice species you have captured. Very interesting. Lovely colours and sharpness. They actually look spectacular. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Hoi Karin,
Deze heb ik nog nooit gezien. Is dit een bloem die alleen in sub-tropisch klimaat voorkomt? Ik vind vooral de knoppen van de bloem erg mooi. Heb je deze foto gemaakt tijdens scherp daglicht? Het contrast tussen de donkere bladeren en de koppen en bloemen is best wel groot. Zelfs zo groot dat de bloemen en knoppen er een beetje overbelicht uit zien. Een CP filter had dit kunnen voorkomen.

Als je deze foto met je nieuwe camera had genomen en met een mooie telelens, of macro lens, had je je diafragma zo kunnen zetten dat de achtergrond mooi wazig werd.


great plant, wish to konw more about it. happy new year, Ori

Hellow Karin,
