Gert is one simple human being, his shots are simple, like him, yet, so beautiful. His words are straight and critiques are genuine.I remember that this simpleton was perhaps amongst the last to know about
the Sumon da/Will get back later issue (I still feel this place is still not the same, as it used to be). And even then, his concern was so genuine...But without digressing any further, thank you, Gert, for being real not just in your beautiful shots, but also in spirit!

This shot was taken at an altitude of 10000 feet ASL. These beautiful flowers, just short of a centimetre in diameter, were growing off the rocky stones on the hills as we went trekking. I do not know the ID, but one young man, who was our guide on the trek, told me that this is a weed of sorts!
What a beautiful weed!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hallo Goldy,
What dedication splendid colors and playing with them!
Interesting descriptions of these images.
I am convinced that Gert's going to be very happy.
Have a quiet Sunday,

Ciao Goldy. Nice coloured flower's taken. Great light. Maybe little OE but an usually situation with white and yeallow colours. Best regards.


Hello Goldy,
A nice picture with interesting colours and a very good composition.

Ciao Goldy, fantastic light on beautiful flowers, splendid colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Interesante trabajo por la bonita mezcla de colores. Ténicamente creo que mejoraría alejándose un poco más para que aumentara algo la profundidad.
Un saludo y buena semana Goldy: J. Ignasi.

Hi Goldy,in my country this is a typical springtime situation...as i can see in your is from now.Impressive composition,a lot of lights and colors in a very nice perspective,very good idea and work,thanks for share,have a nice week,LUCIANO

Hi Goldy bhai,

Great dedication to our friend, Gert! I know he is great admirer of flowers.

Sadly, I must share with you that I was surprised when I first saw this capture...as I can't believe that it belongs to you!
This doesn't fulfill your quality standard, yaar! Most of the flowers are out of focus (though some of them even OE, and even it is very hard to see which one of them you really want to get focused..and the off-centered position of your copyright text, simply declines the quality of work immensely.
Hope to see a better capture from you next time..

Please don't mind, it is just my personal opinion, so please feel free to (dis)agree :)

my best regards,

Hi L'il Bro,

Very beautiful capture and wonderful dedication to our big Brother Gert!
TFS and have a nice week!

Hi Goldy,
nice view of the flowers in different colours.
Very special effect of the light giving a nice hues.
Nicely composed with top view to highlight the beauty.


Love the end of your last paragraph "...What a beautiful weed!" For a moment I thought one could "smoke" it.
These are wild high altitude "daisies"; most common here in higher elevations in Alberta.
Great dedication to a GREAT fellow.
Wonder why it was not focused properly??? Not like you. Must have been the intense cold.
Warm greetings from your "jathwalla" in COLD COLD Calgary.

Bonjour Goldy
superb dedicace pour Gert,
ce tapis de fleurs est très agréable à regarder, ces petites beautés roses et blanches, baignées par un superbe soleil illuminent cette images et nos coeurs
Passe une bonne nuit

Hi Goldy,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the flowers. The morning light is enhancing the colors of the flowers. Well done, have a nice day.


Hi Goldy
Your flowers are very pretty, even if they are a weed. They look similar to a Chrysanthemum (one of many varieties) or a type of daisy. I'll have to see if I can ID for you. What ever the flowers are they are colourful and I like the way the sunlight brightens them up.
TFS Janice

Bonjour Goldy,
Très délicate attention et formidable bouquet multicolore.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
