Salam Umar,
An impressive flowering plant in full bloom, taken from a good POV to show its flowers with excellent clarity and natural colours.
The WS is great too.
TFS this image of this species, new to me.
With best regards,

Bonjour Umar,
Le cadrage est un peu trop serré dans le haut de l'image mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé dans une belle lumière et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Umar,
Thanks to present this rarely shown plant. I had a look at your WS-picture and I actually prefer the one in the WS. But I understand that you wanted to show the flowers from a closer point of view.
Thanks !
Kind regards

Hello Umar

I love more the version of the WS with
the vertical framing, the yellow color tones
are beautiful and the lovely light coming
on the wild flowers, TFS

Hello Umar,
Two very beautiful views of this flower covered with blossoms. It looks like it has fleshy leaves that keep it alive in the dry desert. Great sharpness and lovely colours!
TFS and best regards, Ulla
