[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This kind of flower (cichorium intybus), in Croatian "vodopija" (water-drinker) gets stronger blue and violet when it gets a lot of water. This picture was was taken during a dry period, so the color was light and pale. The plant's root is used as a coffee substitute. The plant is also used in traditional medicine against various ailnesses, for example against gallstones, sinus problems and gastrointestinal problems.

Hi Robert,
good composition pic of this Cichorium.
TFS. Ferran

Bonjour Robert,
Agréable publication dans laquelle le sujet est bien valorisé mais pour laquelle un cadrage plus serré aurait favorisé la perception de la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
Gérard
