Dark columbine (Aquilegia atrata)

I had absolutely no idea about the name of this beautiful flower, but thanks to Emmari I could find out that it is a flower called Dark Columbine. It's a flower from the family of the Ranunculaceae. They bloom from May to July

I never saw this flower before this afternoon - they are quite uncommon in my region, as they come from the Alps and usually grow in higher altitudes.

They were growing along the road, not far from my village, among more "traditional" flowers like poppies or buttercups. Their deep purple color immediatly catched my attention. They are growing only on a very small area. I like its shape and color very much, it's a very beautiful flower.


I hope you will like it !

Bonjour Valérie,
Je suis passionné par le monde des oiseaux...fasciné par les fleurs et les fossiles.
Cette fleur est extraordinaire par sa forme et ses couleurs et vous en avez réussi une superbe photo.
Plus je la regarde, plus je cherche à comprendre ce mystère de la nature: à partir d'une si petite graine, souvent la grosseur d'un poux (ou plus petite encore),et produire autant de beauté.
Merci de nous l'avoir si bien présentée et en toute sobriété.
JN.

Hi Valerie,
Crisp clear on this Dark Columbine. Flowers seem to float out from background. Good POV and composition. Very well done. TFS

Waouh ! Ces Ancolies sont magnifiques avec cette couleur sombre, j'adore. L'exposition, les couleurs et la netteté sont excellentes. Pour chipotter : il aurait été sympa de gommer les 2 tiges claires en haut à droite...
Compliments Valerie et merci de partager ce superbe cliché.

Bravo Valérie!
Great shot of this beautiful flower! Amazing colours on the flower! amazing texture too. bg is great and I like the framing a lot!

Hi Valerie,
Superb macro work... well composed too!
Interesting with two flowers, where you get a different angle on each of them...
DOF spot on, and your point of view is working well!

Bonjour Valérie

J'ai beaucoup ta photo. J'ai aussi croqué une colombine l'an dernier, tout au nord de l'Amérique, lors de mon voyage en Alaska, blanche et bleue, mais moins sombre que le bleu de tes colombines. Je vous la ferai partager bientôt.

Valerie bonjour,ces fleurs d'Encolie noirâtre sont comme du velour!! Composition et teintes magnifiques avec un impression d'image en 3D!Le petit liseré violet pourrait être plus distret, je pense que cela ne nuirait pas.Toutes mes félicitations, Didier.

Hello Valerie! This is a lovely capture of these columbines! Gorgeous saturation of colour, great clarity and nicely framed. I am growing some for the first time and hope they are as pretty as your photograph! Well done! Thank you, Linda

Belle lumière et belle densité pour cette image. J'aprécie aussi le cadrage carré et la composition en double diagonale. Le pourtour avec son rappel de couleur ajoute un plus.
Souvent on joue sur la chance mais là il y a un beau travail!

Hallo Valerie
Absolutely stunning. Such a beautiful flower. The colours is really eye-catching and a good combination of shades. I like it very much. I love purple and even created a theme with the title "My purple obsession." Thanks for sharing this beauty with all of us but to me in particular. I liked it so much I saved it as my background on my computer. Thanks for sharing. I have added this photo to my theme.
Kind regards
Anna
