Hi Trekkers,

Although Scotch Pine (Pinus sylvestris) is a very common conifer in Eurasia, but we very rarely see its young female flowers. Today, when we visited the Knockmealdown Mountains, I had the luck to find and photograph them (for the first time in my life).

Photo: taken in manual exposure mode with using macro converter lens. PP: moderate cropping, adjusting levels, white balance, shadows/highlights, re-sharpening after re-sizing.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Laszlo,
If you wouldn't have mentioned that this was the flowers of a Scotch Pine I would never have guessed, quite lovely. At first glance I just thought it was an exotic plant that I had never seen before. I love the fine detail and vertical framing. Perfectly exposed with rich natural color tones.

Hi Laszlo,

A lovely picture with such beautiful & natural colors. Good details and nice pov.

Warm regards,

Ciao Laszlo, lovely composition with nice blossom on beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
