Hi TN friends,
As first I want sorry for my fewer critiques, but I’ve actual not much time.

Today I will show you a very nice species of Acantholimon.
On the picture you see the flower of Acantholimon hohenackeri also known as "Prickly Dianthus". It is common into the mountains of Greece till the Middle East.
Acantholimon hohenackeri is hardy till -40°C.

I hope you enjoy.


P.S. Information for TN Admins It´s a WILD PLANT not a CULTIVAR

Hello Sascha,
Excellent details and superb colours.
Wonderful composition with very good focus and great sharpness.

hallo sascha, gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut, mal was ganz anderes, alles in pastell und ein fantastischer hintergrund. weiter so...morgen wird bestimmt sehr interessant, freu mich schon.

Excelente trabajo Sascha. La nitidez y el enfoque son muy buenos a pesar del pequeño tamaño de estas flores. Buena luz.
Yo tengo ese Sigma pero no se sacarle tan buen partido como tú.
Un trabajo excelente.

Hi Sascha.
Nice art picture. I am impressed with wonderful DOF and pleasant combination of crisp sharpness of beautiful flowers with tiny details and perfect smooth BG. I had this lens and could not imagine that it can produce such attractive bokeh. Thanks and best wishes.
