Doronicum grandiflorum is a species of Doronicum, a member of the aster family.
D. grandiflorum is a perennial herb growing 10-40 cm. (4-16 in.) tall and bearing numerous yellow flower heads borne singly on hairy stalks. The large, ovate (egg-shaped) ground-leaves have toothed edges and are supported by long, narrow petioles. The flower stems also bear leaves spaced alternately along the lower half of the stem. These hug the stem and are ovate to lanceolate in shape. The leaves are heavily densely beset with both glandular and non-glandular hairs. The flower heads are 4-6 cm. (1.5-2.5 in.) wide and have both yellow ray and disc flowers. Flowers appear from July through August.
Distribution and habitat
This species is found growing in limestone rubble and gravel, such as that one eroding mountain slopes. It is native to mountainous regions between 1400 and 3400 m in altitude in the Alps, Pyrenees and northern Balkans.
Order: Asterales
Family: Asteraceae
Genus: Doronicum
Species:D. grandiflorum (Wikipedia)

Ciao Fabrizio,
il giallo intenso e luminoso su sfondo nero (e con questa profonditÓ)rende l'immagine decisamente gradevole.
Ottimo risultato davvero.

Hello Fabrizio,

The dark background enhances the yellow flowers neatly!
The composition works well with three distinct layers, pin sharp details in the petals and the colours are lively and well reproduced...
