Centaurium littorale

Today I couldn’t resist the temptation of sharing this nice and tiny flower with you. I like the shape of its stamens and the colour it has.

I'm really sorry about my absence here, but a recent operation on my knee that prevents me for walking by mountains and too much work had made difficult to get and even posting photos. I eventually will get fixed both problems, but I have to wait for now!

I'd thank Maite for the identification of this flower.

Hola Jose.
Los colores son muy llamativos y la foto está perfectamente presentada.
Saludos amigo, JL.

Hola José,
Bellas flores sin duda, aqui crecen unas muy similares, pero todavía no pude hacer una que me satisfaga.
Tal vez no tan nítida la imagen creo que debido a la falta de luz. A pesar de esas condiciones, bien la profundidad focal.
Saludos

Dear José,
fragile yet determined, these pale pink and yellow blossoms are widely opening their petals to the light of a short day of autumn. A very pleasant, artistically well composed image, spreading the power of optimism.
I wish you all the best to get over your problems with walking, and too much work. I have been suffering from just the same myself in these days. Your picture is cheering me up.
Thank you my dear friend.
My best regards,
Peter

Hola José Miguel,
Que bellos contrastes!
Muy buena la elección del punto de vista y la forma en que armaste la composición.
Me gusta el cerrdo encuadre y los delicados detalles que se observan.
Te operaste la otra rodilla?
Espero que tu recuperaciónn vaya bien y sin contratiempos
Enhorabuena por la foto y que bueno que la subiste.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Bonita composición José y preciosos tonos
de color. Curioso y bien captado el chillón
:-) órgano reproductor de esta flor. No sabia de tu salud, espero estés recuperado. Yo tengo
problemas en la rodilla hace un par de meses, me dijo un colega que es menisco, solo me
molesta, y mucho, al arrodillarme al tirar fotos... aver que será.

Abrazo.

Hi Jose,
Our countries seem to have a lot in common as regarding flora (I see from your latest posts) yet sadly this one isn't known to me.Its a pretty little thing and I like its furry little yellow pollen stalks.You caught a nice bunch...TFS.

Hola Jose!
Qué bueno verte otra vez por aquí y con una foto tan impresionante. La verdad es que estas florecillas son la mar de graciosas con esos estambres tan curiosos. Yo diría que son de la familia Gentianaceae. Posiblemente Centaurium littorale. Mira esta dirección y ya me contarás: http://flora.nhm-wien.ac.at/Seiten-Arten/Centaurium-littorale.htm
Tu foto es una auténtica maravilla. Se ven los estambres y pistilos con todo detalle.
¡Me encanta!
Muchas gracias y felicidades.
Un coridal saludo
Maite

Hi Jose,
A beautiful arrangement of beautiful flowers. Lovely colors with very good details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi dear Jose ,
nice shot with lovely colours.
good light and nice sharpness.

Hello Jose,
I am concerned to know about your problems. I am sure you would get over them soon. Please take care.
There was a time when I used to spend hours on TN writing all critiques permitted each day and admiring lots of good pictures. Now I too am bogged down with work and other family preoccupations.

Coming to your picture, this is as usual another great flower composition from you.
I like the colour of these flowers and the way you have composed the shot.
Finally, thanks for your kind words on my 500th post.
Best regards.
Ram

Que preciosa José !!! Una compo de lujo y con unas texturas estupendas porque parecen chuches y dan ganas de comérselas.

Permíteme que te pregunte una cosa... ¿a qué ISO la has tomado?, ¿no la ves con un pelín de ruido?... dime si conoces una aplicación que se llama "Neat Image", si no la conoces te diré que quita muy bien el ruido y es muy facilita de usar... tú pide y te la hago llegar en un pis-pas.

Por cierto... leo lo de tu operación, espero que me puedas contar que ya estás mejorcito y que volverás a ser el terror de las montañas dentro de ná!!!.

Un abrazo y hasta prontito

Cris

Hello Jose,
It has been a long time since I have seen some of your pictures indeed :) This is a nice specie of flower that I think that I see for the first time. I like those natural colors, composition and exposure. I hope that your knee will get better very soon! Best wishes,
Claudine

Hola Jose.

Que bonitas flores has captado con un contraste de color que les favorece.

Saludos.
Jose Luis.

Muy buenas Jose
Unas florecillas muy bonitas y con un gran contraste entre los amarillos y violetas... y espero que sea violeta o es que me estoy volviendo daltónico....
Un saludo y espero darme una vueltecilla más amenudo, pero es que el trabajo me sale por las orejas en estas fechas....

Hola José,
This is a superb macro of the flowers of C. littorale, a species we have on our coast but I never realised the beauty of these small flowers until I saw this marvellous macro with excellent detail and colours set in a fine composition.
I hope you knee gets better soon. My brother in-law is having his knee operated in January and I understand that it is a complicated proceedure.
Best wishes to you,
Ivan

This is very beautiful and colourful flower. On the other hand I believe that a little better DOF would be good :)
